Looks can be deceiving with the Ivon cardigan. At first glance, Ivon is a simple overgarment, but upon closer inspection couture design elements begin to reveal themselves. Overlapped crescent cuffs, fully faced front bands, and short-row set-in sleeves elevate an otherwise straightforward piece of outerwear. Knit in woolen-spun Shelter yarn, Ivon is perfect for warding off chilly weather and begs to be layered over the other bespoke pieces in your collection.
