Felton by Sloane Rosenthal is the long cable-and-texture cardigan made for three-season wear. The soothing expanses of moss stitch are broken by Sloane’s signature cables, which flow seamlessly from the ribbing. The central back panel is mimicked on the front bands of this open cardigan.
This cardigan is worked from the bottom up with optional tubular cast ons for the hem and cuffs. The full-fashioned shoulder tailoring adds polish and a ready-to-wear finish to this luscious and ultra-wearable cardigan.
