What you need to know

With a flattering shape and a simple tie fastening, this cardigan is easy to pair with any summer outfit. Sian Brown's design features a shell pattern which highlights the metallic strands in the yarn, making it a delicate, feminine knit. Plus the lightweight cotton composition of the yarn makes this a breathable garment for the warm summer afternoons.
