Perfect execution elevates this tweed cardigan from classic to icon. Saddle shoulders, subtle waist shaping, a wide purl column at the back and faux seams create a flawless tailored silhouette—all without any sewing. Smart stripes are the final touch to make this a standout piece.
Worked from the top down, construction starts with the saddles; stitches are then picked up along each side and the yoke worked downward with simultaneous set-in sleeves. A deep mock rib finishes the cuffs and body. A generous range of ten sizes (to fit chest measurements from 32" to 65") ensures a great fit. Optional faux seams lend the look of a seamed sweater and provide structure.
