When I pass a working port or see a container ship, a large portion of the containers are always the green of the China Shipping company. Some are new, but others are older and show signs of rust and corrosion. The colors and speckled stripes of this cardigan remind me of these containers, distinct in every huge shipyard.

Available for individual purchase or as part of the Container Ships club.

32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)-inch bust circumference. Cardigan is meant to fit with no ease across the bust; for a more relaxed fit, make the size larger than your actual bust size. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
