Add structural flair to your wardrobe with a plush cabled cardigan. Wide bands of front ribbing fold back to form a collar and create an architectural silhouette. The densely worked fabric features rope cables spliced into a lattice for vivid texture and cozy warmth. The double-ribbed hem extends into ribbed side panels that punctuate the cabled motif for visual balance. Ilia’s boxy fit makes for easy layering; the fronts may be pinned to close if you wish, so choose a size that gives you 3-5” of ease with the fronts overlapped.
