A cardigan for the girl who’s finding her own way. Chunky brioche details, patch pockets on the fronts and elbows, and a unique collar combine for a look that’s at once tough, feminine, and smart. Knit flat with waist shaping and set-in sleeves, Marshal is designed for a classic fit. The stockinette body is worked in Loft, while the brioche accents are in Shelter for bold texture.
