Orange You Glad Cardigan

Orange You Glad is a stockinette, boxy cropped cardigan with a round jewel neckline. Colorful beads are knit throughout on the bodice, the back and the three-quarter length sleeves. Complete with a pop of teal down the center, this is the vibrant piece your summer wardrobe has been waiting for.
