The Bray Cardigan’s silhouette evokes the tailored lines of an equestrian riding jacket, but the look is softened by the luscious cable work. Structure is integral to this cardigan; it’s worked in pieces and seamed to prevent stretching. The collar and buttonband are picked up and knitted. Crosshatch leather buttons are the perfect finish for this rich garment.
