Two colors create a striking contrast in this simply shaped, flattering cardigan. Details like the triangle rib around the hem, cuffs, and collar elevate this sweater beyond the everyday. The luxe combination of Cima and Silk Cloud creates a sumptuous fabric with a soft halo. No.16 can be worn with the buttons in front or back, making it a versatile wardrobe essential.
