Description
"I wanted to use cables in an unexpected way that was integrated into the construction of the Slanting Gretel Tee. They act as visual cues to the A-line silhouette and raglan shaping: your basic bottom-up raglan—only a little fancier," notes Petra Manis. A subtly color-shifting merino wool and silk blend gives intricate cable crossings a sweet, soft-yet-crisp definition.
