Rib knit inserts extend from the under the armhole to the waist. Two appliques are sewn on the front chest

Style number 76292 is a woman’s cardigan that features a hood, long sleeves with turn back cuffs, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front vertical pockets in the waist area, and a banded bottom. Appliques are sewn on the left sleeve, the left chest, the front bottom left, and the upper back of the garment. The outer surface of the cardigan measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

Your samples are being returned.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
