A study in elegance and ease, Cassatt is a knit-quilt made for draping over a bare shoulder as day cools to evening. Each tessellated diamond is a vignette of interlocking vertical and horizontal expressions. Subtle cables form the precise angles of this sewing-inspired wrap while Arbor’s crisp definition underscores its plush, three-dimensional fabric.
