Norah takes the knitter on a multidirectional adventure in this oversized, boxy cardigan. Working from the top down, the body begins with a center column from which the back yoke is picked up and worked outward, to the sleeves. This piece is a hybrid, combining circular and flat construction techniques to achieve the finished garment—an enjoyable process piece with understated polish.
