Product description

“This cardigan was inspired by a desire to play with volume and drape in combination with a strong, architectural stitch pattern and clean, flattering details. The deep, bell-like swoop of the bottom hem is balanced by the tailored shoulders and three-quarter length sleeves, and both are complimented by the soft falls of the fronts and shawl collar. Add to this an interesting take on traditional raglan shaping, and you have a cardigan that’s both intriguing to knit and effortless to wear!” – Bristol Ivy
