This open cardigan in braided cables and airy lace makes use of bias fabric to create unexpected angles and intersections at every turn—an alluring split at the nape of the neck, a mitered hem with a flattering line of chevrons at the sides. The back and fronts are worked flat from large charts; the stockinette sleeves are also worked flat and sewn on. Deep pockets warm your hands and hold your treasures. Apex is the kind of garment you can throw on to pull any outfit together, so choose a color from the Shelter palette that coordinates with your wardrobe staples.
