Inspired by the similarly named Edwardian stately home that is situated in England’s Surrey Hills, Polesden Lacy has a similar nostalgic style with a modern twist.

A boat neck, mid-length sleeved classic cardi in a DK weight yarn. It has a contrast colour lace overlay in Fingering weight yarn that is incorporated using 2 circular needles. The cardi is worked from the top-down, then worked seamlessly to the hemline.
