Geribá Cardigan

$ 8.00

The Geribá Cardigan is a must-have piece for any wardrobe, to be worn year-round— from a chilly night by the seaside to a cozy evening by the fireplace. Worked top-down, with a classic raglan shaping, intriguing curves, and a playful collar, this sweater goes well with any outfit.

This sweater was designed to be worn open, so even though it requires a little positive ease, the finished measurements of the body without the collar will be smaller than the actual bust circumference for that size.
