Product Details

This gorgeous texted cardigan dates from the 1930s era. Designed to be worn to the waistline and can be worn as a jumper or as a cardigan. The unusual cable pattern creates a three dimensional effect. A slightly dropped armhole is disguised by the vertical cable placement and the sleeves are almost invisibly joined along this point. A truly stylish and clever design for the more experienced knitter.

Knitted in Excelana 4ply 100% british wool from Susan Crawford in Persian Grey colourway.

The pattern includes charted instructions for the cable pattern.
