The Design

“Ooh la la!”

This sweet little cardigan summons daydreams of tiny, European street cafés. Madeleine is casual and très chicwe swoon over the French-inspired stripes, slender sleeves, and feminine, A-line silhouette. Designed by the brilliant Julie Weisenberger, Madeleine uses the Cocoknits Method of seamless, top-down sweater makingknitting will be a breeze!

Madeleine is knit in two of Shibui’s most scrumptious fibersCima and Twig. That’s a strand of Cima and a strand of Twig, both in the same color, held together for each stripe. Cima’s delicate fusion of alpaca and merino lends its glow to Twig’s drapey, cool blend of wool, silk, and linen. Knit together, they create a crisp texture with a wonderfully soft touch. We love the classic black-and-white contrast (naturellement), but you can combine any of Shibui’s rich colors you like. Magnifique.
