Essential Cardigan

Essential Cardigan



This elegant cardigan will quickly become your go-to sweater. Double moss stitch gives the fabric a delicate texture, while ribbed cables climb along the front opening and neckline, lending a subtle curve to the bottom edge. The raglan cardigan is knit seamlessly from the bottom up and the cabled front bands continue until they meet at the back of the neck. Wear it open, or close it with a shawl pin for a closer fit.
