  • Northbound - Cardigan

    Northbound is a drop-sleeve cardigan with a shawl collar. The body features columns of stockinette stitch and an easy-to-remember twisted stitch pattern that flows seamlessly into the rib, while the sleeves are worked top-down in stockinette stitch. A boxy fit and tapered sleeves lead to an easy-to-wear modern silhouette.
