Description

The sweet, sleek Millefiori Cardigan uses an open, delicate, deeply textured clam stitch in alternating rows to set off sweater-girl lines. Andrea Pomerantz uses a smooth cotton and milk-protein blend for a smooth, refined effect and adds a vintage-inspired high rounded neckline, three-quarter sleeves, and a scalloped buttonband.
