Velvety cardigan is designed with a slouchy modern silhouette in mind. The loose and wide square set-in sleeve and boxier body make for a perfectly casual look. The sweater is knitted in an easy yet beautiful texture that creates a fluffy and airy structure to the garment. Velvety is knitted bottom up. Sleeves are picked up along the armhole and knit top down.
