Beatrice Cardi is a boho-woodsy inspired cardigan-coat. It’s chunky weight, longer length and oversized sleeves make this a cozy sweater you won’t be able to take off. The ¾-length puffy sleeves, unusual front band and pocket flaps and tassel details give this Cardi a unique and special feel. Although this Cardi comes in one size only, its oversized-positive-ease style has room to fit many shapes and sizes. Also, knit top-down allows you to try on as you knit, making modifications where needed.
