A cozy cardigan perfect for boys and girls alike. Knit in DK weight to create the perfect layer to fend off fall’s chill. Simple cables frame the button bands and decorate the waistline. The body is knit in one piece from the top down, so it’s nearly seamless, and a simple rolled collar finishes it off.
