This pretty cardigan in 8 sizes (S to L and 1X to 5X), features twining cables in the front lapels, lower sleeves, and back, paired with a background of woven openwork. Cabled lapels extend to the center back neck for a sophisticated finish. Open-front styling (with optional button closure) and a strong vertical pattern contribute to a graceful, forgiving silhouette, flattering for any figure type.
