Aran cable cardigan
“This cardigan is knitted in one piece and is cleverly seamed to form the innovative shape. With double moss stitch as the ground, a large interlocking cable twists up both fronts and across the shoulders in a distinctive edge to edge cardigan. Wear it on its own or with your favourite leather belt.”
