Classic, comforting, and handsome—Cord by co-founder Meghan Babin is a signature cabled raglan designed with everyone in mind. The braid- ed cable + slipped garter rib motif flows seamlessly from the 2x2 ribbing with selvedge details en- hancing the design. This gender-neutral sweater is made from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. The foldover 1x1 collar is picked up and worked in the round and then seamed down for a sturdy and comfortable sweater made to last and cherish forever.
