Product description

Michele’s snow-white cardigan is the type of sweater we love to wrap up in all year round. The garment features an allover cable and lace motif trimmed with deep ribbed hems. The double-breasted shawl collar, rolled sleeve cuffs, lined pockets, and modified drop-shoulder construction create a cozy fit with classic appeal. The sweater’s ribbing is worked at a firmer gauge to give the garment structure, while the textured body fabric is worked on a larger needle to give the fabric necessary movement and drape.

Designer: Michele Wang

Collection: Spring Thaw
