Maema Cardigan

Maema is a lightweight cardigan knit top down in one piece. It features Honeycomb Brioche on the fronts and back to provide some squishy texture on this simple raglan shape. It is open at the front with exaggerated armholes and roomy elbow length sleeves, which makes it a perfect spring and summer layering piece. The single ply Merino yarn contributes to the airy feel of the cardigan’s lightweight fabric and draping silhouette.
