Traditional Aran patterns and plenty of bobbles create a lively play of pattern in a change-of-the-season V-neck cardigan. A smooth unvariegated yarn in a blend of Suri alpaca and merino shows off the twists and turns in the stitchwork and allows for comfort next to the skin. The cropped length, short sleeves, and a bright color make this garment a worthy descendant of classic sweater style.
