Ray of Soleil cardigan was inspired by my Ray of Soleil pullover. I love it so much I had to have it in a cardigan! This cardigan Features a beautiful eyelet yoke followed by 2 wedges, and a textured ribbing for the double collar, cuffs and hem. And finally to make this my dream cardigan, I topped it off with adorable buttons and pockets in contrasting colors!! I hope this cardigan will bring you as much “soleil” as it brings me! - Andrea
