The Hibiscus Cardigan is a cozy, hip-length cardigan with a deep V-neck and slim ribbed sleeves. The body is worked in a fun, easy textured chevron pattern with ribbed hem and bands.

The cardigan was designed in collaboration with Miss Babs for their Summer Collection for Maryland Sheep and Wool 2017.
