8459 Cardigan

Managing seasonal changes can be tricky with knitwear. This cropped cardi solves virtually all possible problems. The shorter length, 3/4 sleeves, and very open V-neck all prevent overheating, while the lush ribbed and cabled body of the piece can actually keep you warm. This is to say nothing of the fact that it looks great with everything, from dresses to jeans. Shoulders are drop so there's no armhole shaping; sleeve tops are flat. So if you're an ambitious beginner wanting to stretch beyond stockinette, or just love good seasonless sportwear, give this a go.
