Named after an ancient Greek goddess, Persephone, also called Kore - a sculptural representation that idealises the young female, which is always depicted to wear her hair in braids. Kore Cardi is an open front cardigan with a beautiful braided cable pattern along front bands. The hemline is unique with playful mind, designed to gently drape when you open it. And it should also be worn with deeply overlapping sides like a kimono.

The body of this cardigan is worked in three pieces, Back, Right Front, and Left Front. Each piece is worked from the bottom up and seamed together. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down with short-row shaping in the shoulder cap.
