A sweet little open-front cardigan to throw on at a moment’s notice, Iris is a study in subtle satisfaction and showcases the tonal beauty of our butter-soft Phoebe. Clever details in this pretty number include dart shaping that follows the curve of the back, fronts widening softly from yoke to body to envelope the wearer in comfort, and a smart rib texture gracing the upper back and shoulders.
