Description
The cardigan is handknitted in cream angora with random abstract design of layered concentric oval forms in acid green and black angora. The high, round neckline, sleeve cuffs, waist cuff and centre front opening are each finished with a double band of ribbed knit, hemmed with chain stitch in cream wool on the reverse. The cardigan fastens at the centre front with a row of five cream plastic buttons and the shoulder-line is shaped with attached shoulder pads.
