Clever A-line shaping, a slightly dropped hem, and bracelet length sleeves elevate this cardigan from practical to indispensable. The incredible drape and softness of the fabric make Farallon fabulous as a layering piece, while the back braid, angled side seam lines, and fun notched hem insist that this is the piece that defines a favorite outfit. A seeded rib collar and slipped rib accents add the perfect contrasting textures and elements of interest.

Farallon can be worn with a little ease for a more tailored look, or more ease to create a slightly boxy silhouette. Top down knitting allows for an easily customized fit, and the neckband is worked with the body to keep finishing minimal.
