A generous fit coat cardigan with matching snood

A generous fit coat cardigan in all over moss stitch with a giant horseshoe cable as a feature. Almost cape like in silhouette with deep extended raglan sleeves that hit fashionably at the elbow with an oversized cuff opening.

Accessorized with a moss stitch and horseshoe cable snood.
