A modern interpretation of a classical Christmas experience, Cassandra Christmas Sweater melds form fitted style with classical stitch patterns. Seed/ Moss stitch accents waist shaping on the body of the garment. As you reach to place the finishing touch atop your Christmas tree, the underside of the sleeve reveals the hidden reflected stitch. The collar detail provides a final touch of festive elegance.
