A new classic! A modern twist on the classic simple cardigan, Lillian is the perfect sweater for almost any weather or outfit. An unique openwork “keyhole cable” to runs along the center back to capture my vision of a garment with clean lines, grace, charm and a little bit of sex appeal. The special cable detail makes this a fun project, and it looks so polished that people will be shocked when they find out you knit it yourself.

The garment body and set-in sleeves are both worked seamlessly, so minimal finishing is required.
