Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2007:
“In her designs for women, Londoner Bliss - so well know stateside for her knits for babies and children - achieves the fresh timelessness she admires in the work of Marion Foale, her own favorite Brit-knit designer, who similarly updated silhouettes from the past to fit contemporary tastes. Bliss’s formfitting Fair Isle cardigan, in ‘Cashmerino Baby’ by Debbie Bliss/KFI, sports a V neckline and thin striping above the hip and cuff ribbing.”
