Chalkboard Cardigan – by Francesca Hughes

£7.00

Chalkboard is a slouchy, drop sleeved cardigan with a fantastic slip stitch pattern around the hem and trims of sleeves, creating squares and rectangles one might see on the school mathematics chalkboard. Using a punchy colour to overlay on the natural Exmoor Zwartbles blend makes a fun accentuated statement. This colour is also used inside of all the folded trims for a flash of colour when you wear the cardigan un done or fold your sleeves up.
