Dear Ms. Choi:

The garment features a hood, a full front zippered opening, a print design on the upper front panels, two patch pockets at the waist, and a loose fitting rib knit banded bottom.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.20.2079, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweatersand similar articles, knitted: of cotton: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 16.5% ad valorem.
