The designer uses simple rib and cable elements to soften the lines of a tailored wrap cardigan. A worsted-weight merino shows off the deep plush ribs of the sweater's front border and foldover cuffs, and the yarn's smooth texture calls out cable details that follow the lines of the collar and top the cuff for several inches. A crocheted belt marks the waist and holds the fronts together.
