Minimalist Cable Cardigan (Lore) Kit

About Minimalist Cable Cardigan (Lore)

This modern take on a classic wardrobe staple features deep ribbing at the hem and cuffs, cable columns set into a textured backdrop, and a gently sloped v-neck, designed to look great and drape well, buttoned or unbuttoned. The back and sleeves are a clean slate of reverse stockinette with a single continuous column of stockinette running up the side seam and down the sleeve to the cuff. Choose from full or cropped lengths and two sleeve styles for year-round wear with your handmade wardrobe.
