Product description

“This cozy wrap cardigan is worked with no shaping, being merely the combination of five rectangles. The finished garment can be worn two ways: as a drop shoulder cardigan with a stole-like collar, or flip it upside down for a short bolero with a dramatic shawl collar. The design is intended to give the wearer several different styling options – I hope you enjoy it.”− Michiyo
