Washington

It’s a cardigan, it’s a shawl. Washington by illitilli is the cardigan made for Sunday mornings with the New York Times crossword, coffee, and knitting. Named after the Brooklyn cobblestone street that looks out to the Manhattan Bridge, this cardigan captures the aesthetic of Brooklyn with its nubbly garter stitch lines and on-the-bias construction. Washington is worked in pieces and seamed, then the armholes are picked up and worked in the round. Find some toggle buttons to complete this cozy, simple, and modern cardigan.

Designed for Hudson + West Co's Forge.
