BabyCocktails’ Shiraz is a basic cardigan that’s anything but basic. The open neck, hourglass design, and centered buttons draw the eye in and create a slimming, feminine silhouette. Knit in basic worsted, it’s bound to become a go-to piece in any wardrobe. The seed stitch and ribbed picot edges add texture that really stands out in a solid or textured wool , and the top down construction gives you plenty of opportunity to customize the fit for your needs.
