This comfortable cardigan has a raglan construction that is perfect for a casual, layered look. The textured stitch pattern utilizes columns of slipped stitches, interspersed with columns of Garter Stitch to create a spongy, comfortable fabric. A high ribbed collar and horn buttons add subtle personality to this classic wardrobe item for men that is just as appropriate on a bustling city street as it is when camping in the woods.
