There are garments that you just don't want to miss anymore – the small, fine cardigan Azara by designer Katrin Schneider is one of them. We particularly like it in combination with a dress or elegant trousers, and you can easily take it with you on your travels. Whether you prefer a more subtle or a brighter colour, Azara always looks great and suits every occasion. The uncomplicated shape and pretty line pattern in half brioche on the front are a joy to knit and give the open cardigan a modern graphic look.
