Winding more than 1,800 miles through picturesque cities, seaside villages, and flower-filled countryside, Denmark’s Marguerite Route is a popular way to see the country. Signs depicting the marguerite daisy, Queen Margrethe’s favorite flower, mark the route. The daisy inspired the design of this jacquard-knit charcoal gray cardigan with an elegant stand-up collar. Crafted in the central Denmark town of Herning, whose textile industry was first established in the 17th century. Four-button closure.
Made in Herning, Denmark. 50% Cotton/ 50% Acrylic. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).
I bought this for my mother, who is an XL. She loved it but I had to send it back because the arms were tight and rather constricting. Too bad as this is a lovely sweater and probably would work for someone thinner, but I'd size up.
