Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “Deborah Newton has chosen a luxurious angora-wool blend yarn in a subtle pink for this simultaneously sweet, sophisticated, and soft cardigan. Cables and simple leaf motifs (worked in mirror images on each side of the center) are worked in panels separated by reverse stockinette stitch. Subtle waist shaping and set-in sleeves give a polished fit; small eyelets in the ribbing add visual interest.”
