Fernando Cano designs a stylized version of the Andean cross, known as a chakana, for this handsome gray cardigan. Detailed in beige, the chakana represents the link between this world and the world above. Featuring cedar wood buttons and lapel v-neck, the jersey stitch cardigan is knit of alpaca, a warm, lightweight and soft fleece worn in the Andes since the days of the Inca Empire.

the sweater is great. I had several people at work say they loved it. The only problem is when i took if off a button from my shirt pulled out 18 inches of yarn from the sleeve. not sure how i will repair but will need to.

"Lovely sweater but runs small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My husband loved the pattern and the feel and quality but it was too small. Good deal for our grandson but I had to order an extra large to replace the one I bought for my husband for Christmas.For comparison purposes, he wears a 42 regular suit and usually buys large shirts.
