From the late 1950s or very early 1960s, a light olive-green cardigan with darker greenish-gray piping at the jewel neck, ribbon-backed placket, and faux-pocket flaps. Soft, cozy, and fully fashioned, meaning each piece was individually knitted before assembly, which helps knitwear fit better and retain the proper shape after washing. Shell buttons, with snap at neck.
