A beautifully detailed cardigan that goes with most everything! Designed with reverse Stockinette stitch "seaming" to accentuate the waist shaping. Garter stitch button bands are curved at the bottom hem and knit in as part of the front sections.
The generous and cozy shawl collar is also knit in as part of the front sections. Deep garter stitch cuffs finish the slim, shaped, fit-in sleeves. Five big woven leather buttons give it a luxe touch and complete the tailored, yet sexy, silhouette perfectly.
