Jorvik Cardigan

This cabled, top-down raglan cardigan is named for the Norse settlement in England that became known as York, initially called Jorvik (Yor-vik). The wrought iron cable runs down the back, with smaller versions of the same cable on sleeves and at the side seams. There is no finishing, as the button band is integrated as you work the cardigan fronts.
