Duchess Cardigan Knitting Kit
Duchess is a flowing, romantic cardigan with cable detailing at the back and unusual draped front. This creates a soft outline, enhancing the feminine shape. Duchess is a perfect compliment to wear with dresses and skirts in the summer, although she is equally ideal for roll-necked jumpers and jeans for the autumn/winter season.
