The coming of fall always makes me long for oversized, snuggly sweaters that I can wrap around myself and never take off. Because I want to wear them nonstop, I know I need cardigans that can go from cozy mornings on the couch to more polished evenings out. Clove Hitch, with its structured sleeves, careful shoulder shaping, and deep herringbone texture, fits the bill perfectly!
