Cables, in a variety of sizes, combine with openwork to highlight this summer cardigan. Baby cables enhance
all the edges, then morph into larger sizes. Those on the body feature 3 rows of diagonal openwork, while
sleeve cables contain two. Tab and buttons are used as closure on the plain yoke. Sleeves are a modified version of set-in.
