Named for probably the style icon of her day, Queen Alexandra, this cardigan echoes the classic Edwardian silhouette with peplum darts, waist shaping, and cabled faux princess line seams. The lapels are knitted as part of the fronts, as are the button holes. The neckline is neatened and stabilised with a row of single crochet.
