As part of our new Happs Lace collection, this delicately patterned cardigan is perfect for year-round wear – as confirmed by Rosemary Eribé herself who has barely been without hers; she loves it so much! Knitted from very fine 100% merino wool, the cardigan is the perfect light weight piece. The intricate pattern changes through the design to flatter the body shape of the wearer and is complemented with small shell buttons to fasten. Inspired by traditional Shetland lace knitting, which started in around the 1840's, when better transport links between the islands and the mainland attracted visitors to Shetland. The intricate openwork stitches could be knitted so fine that a lace shawl would pass through a wedding ring. Try it with ours! Slim fit.
