Worked in Miss Babs Yowza, this top-down raglan pullover features a cable pattern running from neckline to hem at the center front. The cable was inspired by the richly textured bark of the Western Red Cedar. Wear it while hiking in your favorite forest or out to brunch. Either way, ou’ll find this a wardrobe staple that you’ll turn to again and again.
