Cricket - an English sport with a long tradition and unique style. Jimi Cricket takes on this theme by featuring cables and ribbing, put together in this slimline cardigan. With deep v-neckline and fun colour combinations, this cardigan naturally flatters your shape while keeping you luxuriously warm. Reveal your own ‘cricket’ personality as you combine bold statement colour stripes to suit your taste!

This V-neck cardigan is knitted flat, in pieces from the bottom up. The patterning is formed of a 4-stitch cable & rib throughout. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down. There are 4 colours: the Main Colour dominantly occupies most of the cardigan, while the 3 Contrast Colours are worked in a stripe sequence on all the ribbing trims.
