Beau is a modern, feminine take on the “boyfriend sweater”. The sweater is a classic v-neck with deep ribbing at the hems, and a subtle ruffle lining the entire cardigan opening adds a soft femininity to the piece.

It is knit from the top down in one piece with a raglan yoke and waist shaping at the sides; button bands are worked along with the rest of the sweater and patch pockets are added once the sweater is complete. This cardigan is versatile and, in pretty neutrals, can be styled in a variety of ways.
