Cigar - Cardigan

Format

About Cigar

My inspiration came from the good old smoking cardigans that I’ve always loved. I wanted to make it a bit more feminine and interesting, and I had the picture of it in my head a long time before it got real. It is knitted bottom up, and worked flat. The sleeves are knitted top down with picked up and knit sts around the armhole. The Braid Stitch (smoke if you will) runs along the hem and button band, around the armholes and cuffs. The Braid Stitch is very delicate and easy to remember. It is mostly seamless, except for the shoulder seams. Cigar Cardigan is a long-sleeved, slightly boxy and short cardigan with dropped shoulders that make the cardigan a timeless and very comfortable basic.
