Floriston

An airy, open-front cardigan with bracelet-length sleeves, a deep back pleat, and a bit of waist shaping. The sweater fronts are slightly wider at the bottom for a subtly draped look. A simple, graphic, eyelet-and-rib pattern forms the front bands and is repeated on the inside of the pleat.
