Cordova Cardigan

$5.00

Product Description

A pretty cardi, with a wide round neck, front button closure, three-quarter length sleeves and pretty lace panels at center front and back. Although the panels look intricate, they are simple to work. Best of all, the Cordova is totally seamless. Fronts, back, and button band are worked together to the underarms. Sleeves are worked in the round, then joined to the body for the yoke. The sides are shaped for a flattering fit. A versatile cardigan that’s easy to make and easy to wear.
