Knitted in sumptuously, soft and snuggly cotton, Nell is the perfect little cardi to wear over a pretty Summer dress.
Worked from the bottom-up, Nell starts with a dramatic lace border, topped in an eyelet row through which to thread a lightweight ribbon to tie into a bow at the front. The body continues in garter stitch to show off the yarn’s texture and is framed by cables and dropped stitches from the centre front to all around the neck. The elbow-length sleeves have the same lacy boder and ribbon trim to complement the body.
