Description

Yoko Hatta’s Akiko is a striking and modern cardigan. The crisp structure of Arbor brings distinctive detail to the roped cables, and the open-front cardigan extends upwards to wrap around the neck, creating a comforting lapel. Brooklyn Tweed considers Akiko a level 3 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
