Dressy enough for a night at the opera, this open-front Opera Cardigan from Hooked For Life has just enough sparkle and flare. Wear it belted as shown, open in the front, or arrange it artfully and fasten it with your favorite brooch or shawl pin. The body is a-line, and the sleeves are fitted at the shoulder and bell-shaped past the elbow. Please note that the Opera Cardigan is written for larger sizes only.
