Back to Cardigans

Frances

£5.00

by Susan Crawford

This cardigan is based on the classic 1950s shape of a hip length figure hugging silhouette which allows the fabric of the garment to do the work and create the shape. The design is named after the glamorous Frances Stevens played by Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief. Partnering Cary Grant in this stylish Hitchcock film and playing a very dangerous game, Frances really could have done with a cardigan like this!

The Lattice Stitch pattern used is worked with negative ease allowing the garment to stretch over the wearer.
Excelana has excellent stretch and great stitch definition, so is perfect for this project. Added finishing details of hems and facings in a contrast colour provide those little added touches so synonymous with the glamour of the 1950s.
