Inspired by the long, graceful lines of the late 1920s and the feminine styling of the early 1930s, this elegant cardigan is knitted in one piece from the bottom up to the underarm. It is a relatively straight-forward knit, worked predominantly in stocking stitch but with a fascinating ‘Japanese Feather’ lace stitch worked across the lowest part of the cardigan and on the cuffs of the three quarter length sleeves. The raglan shaping creates a neat finish to the cardigan reducing bulk and drawing the eye inwards. The asymmetric fronts are fastened using a brooch or decorative pin.

Asthall is part of the Knits For A Cold Climate collection
