Youโ€™ll feel like a modern Victorian in this seamless open front cardigan. The body is worked from side to side. A lacy cable ascends and descends up the back, like an ornate staircase of an old Victorian house. The puff sleeves are worked in short rows to make a set in sleeve cap. The modern Victorian can be styled in 3 distinct ways, as shown in the photographs.
