This gorgeously soft, top down, raglan cardigan features large scale lace and cables running down the centre back to the waist. A grown-on, seed stitch belt can either be tied in a large bow at the back or to close the cardigan at the front. Mirror image cables run down the fronts and continue on to the seed stitch trim. There are subtle godets that shape the body from the waist down where the back dips lower than the front with some short row shaping. The sleeves have lace panels running down the centre and the body is finished with a dramatically cabled collar.
