Meant to fit loosely around the body, this cardigan is a great finishing layer to add just a bit of warmth on a chilly day or bring together any outfit.

The basketweave pattern flows away from the body creating flattering lines on just about every shape. With a smooth stockinette pattern on top, the cardigan won’t add unnecessary bulk and provides a clean, smooth texture.
