The Design

“A cardigan to make and wear again and again.”

A modern riff on the grandfather sweater, this simple cardigan moves easily from work day to weekend. We’ve added flattering A-line shaping and a vented hem for relaxed ease with a tidy finish. In cozy wools or cool plant fibers, it’s a perfect layering piece or polished tunic.
