A fresh and retro take on an effortlessly classic raglan cardigan. A semi-fitted design with a soft rounded neck and subtle waist shaping to flatter any figure. Simple lace along the yoke ends just above the bust for a modestly feminine touch. Knit at a slightly looser gauge that gives elasticity to the fabric. Fingering weight yarn results in a beautifully light weight cardigan that is suited for almost any season and ideal for layering.
