“It always comes in handy to have a warm and cosy cardigan to slip on as you head out the door on a bright but chilly spring morning,” says designer Eline Oftedal. “This cardigan is knitted in a simple cable pattern that adds a bit of thickness to the fabric, and a lot of style to the look. It is knitted in one piece from the bottom up; it is divided at the sleeves, and the fronts and the back are knitted separately. There is a slight shaping to the shoulders to make it drape nicely towards the sleeves.”
