Café Cardigan

It’s a cool Saturday morning – everyone else is still sleeping, and you have the morning hours all to yourself. You plan to visit your favorite café to grab a cup of coffee, and settle in with a good book or your latest work-in-progress. What could make this morning better but an oversized, cabled, shawl-collar cardigan? The Café Cardigan was designed with these mornings in mind.
