Simply elegant and oh so wearable. This kimono-sleeved wrap cardigan is a true beauty, with a stunning combination of cables and lace knit patterns.
The front and back sections feature the cables and lace detailing, with waist shaping lines accentuated by the lines of the stitch patterns. The sleeves are done all in lace, with wide ribbing and feature the beautiful, subtly flared kimono shape.
The wrap shape is easy to wear and brings all the design elements together. This is a piece to make for yourself in a luscious cashmere blend yarn called Classic Elite Princess.
Looks great worn over a lacy tank, floral dress, or a slim-fitting long-sleeved tee. A classic sweater shape that will never go out of style and will never be boring. This is an intermediate knitting project.
