Knit in a luxury mix of cashmere, baby camel, angora and merino, embrace is a modern, oversized cardigan that is perfect to wrap yourself in on a balmy day or chilly evening. The long line and unusual shaping, along with the sloped front button band, result in a modern, flattering drape. This is a sweater you will want to wear day-after-day. CONSTRUCTION Fronts and back are worked separately from the bottom-up and shoulders are seamed. Sleeves are picked up and worked from the top down. Front band is picked up and worked and side seams are joined.
