Kaare is a graphic, geometric take on a classic cabled cardigan. Cables converge toward the center of the body then turn and travel back outwards toward the shoulder, creating crisp, flattering lines. A deep shawl collar, inset pockets, and sleeve cuffs worn folded back make this open cardigan exceptionally cozy.
