This lovely cardigan is the perfect partner for vintage style separates and dresses alike.
Based on knitwear patterns from the 1930s & 40s, this cardigan has all the mid century hallmarks; a high crew neckline, seven vintage style buttons and a natural waisted 'crop' fit. (Modern length cardigans just don't work with vintage styles)
Can be worn buttoned up or loose but designed to be close fitting. Knit style is cable - a classic vintage look.
**NB - by popular demand this new version has full length sleeves!
- high crew neckline
- deep ribbing for close crop fit
- vintage style cable stitch
- vintage style acrylic buttons
- wrist length sleeves (approx 60cm from shoulder seam to end)
Fabric: 50% cotton 50% acrylic
Length from centre back to waist: approx 46cm
Washing instructions: Cool machine wash - wash as wool

There is natural stretch in the knit but we recommend you follow bust measurements - if you have a larger bust, the cardigan will accommodate but will seem shorter.

I already have two of these cardies - very flattering fit. This one is a lovely colour. Very good quality, will last for years.
Simply stunning and quality second to none. Colour amazing - soft and soothing. Fit perfect. I also have this cardi in mustard and dark rose. My short arms suit the slightly shorter sleeve length of these colours but the new length is perfectly manageable. More colours please - lavender, burgundy, chocolate brown, quality street purple, rich red .... just a few suggestions!
