A newly improved version: Polesden Lacy has a nostalgic style with a modern twist. It’s a blouson style cardigan with slimline sleeves, made using a DK/Worsted weight yarn base and a contrast colour lace overlay in 4ply/Fingering weight yarn. It is worked flat, from the top-down for the upper half. It is then joined together to work seamlessly down to the hemline, allowing you to adjust for your desired length.
