This fabulous cardigan is part of the Princess Twinset. It is knitted in 4 ply yarn with a decorative twist stitch used as an front edging. The same stitch is used to create saddle shoulder and back neck detailing and a panel of the same is worked at the back of the cardigan.

Knitted in Excelana 4ply 100% british wool from Susan Crawford in Cornflower blue colourway. Excelana has both excellent stretch and stitch definition so is perfect for this project.

It is designed to be worn fitted to the waist with increases worked to the underarm. Additional instructions are provided if you would prefer to knit the cardigan straight.

A wide range of sizes are provided and the instructions are written in full.
