Cardigan Elegantia
Elegantia is a relaxed, lightweight cardigan that can be worn at all seasons and all occasions. Cardigan Elegantia is a very classy garment, knitted with wool made of an alpaca blend with silk.
The yoke is decorated with an easy lace pattern that underlines the luxuriousness of the yarn. Beneath the yoke it is kept plain and knitted flat. The sweater uses a wraparound I-cord to finish off the edges. With seven beautiful buttons, the cardigan can be closed.
