Product description

Amy Christoffers’ tailored cardigan is a perfect balance between casual comfort and finessed fit. The allover mock-cable texture adds a rustic quality, and a zipper-front makes it a perfect cardigan for layering. The sweater is worked with two strands of Loft held doubled, creating a parallel-plied worsted weight yarn with added warmth and great stitch definition.
