Description

The gorgeous Gentle Cardigan, created especially for Purl Soho by knitwear designer Brandi Cheyenne Harper, is high-concept simplicity at its best! Brandi elevates her slip-on stockinette cardi with details you hardly know are there and which, together, create a sweater with real drama and flair. A bottom-up seamless construction, subtle waist shaping, converging raglan decreases, knit-in I-cord edging, and a pop-up collar that never quits… Brandi's attention to fit and style are magnified by our oversize Gentle Giant merino. A single-ply super bulky, Gentle Giant rewards good design with modern brio! Sized for chests from 29-68 inches, click Product Details, above, for more information about materials, gauge, and sizes.
