Cascade Falls is a cozy, open front cardigan with a wide reversible cable that cascades down the front. Its extra thick collar adds warmth at the neckline perfect for chilly days. The designer, Amanda Scheuzger, says it was inspired by a hike that ended with a spectacular view of a waterfall, and would have been the ideal sweater to wear on that crisp afternoon walk.
