Short Description: Willa is a cardigan with set in sleeves and a soft scoop neck. The classic fit makes it versatile enough to dress up with a blouse or wear with her favorite jeans. Willa appears to be a more complicated knit than it actually is. The cabled affect is achieved without cabling and the front button band is a simple garter stitch band with a few yarn-overs for button holes.
