Slantwise texture distinguishes this timeless V-neck cardigan. A directional lattice of cabled ribs is mirrored on the fronts, but slants across the full width of the back to create unexpected asymmetrical movement. Celyn’s stockinette sleeves are set in, with fully fashioned decreases to elegantly shape the caps. The elongated silhouette is shaped with a gentle A-line for a comfortable, flattering fit. As handsome over button-downs as it is cozy over pajamas on a lazy Sunday, this versatile cardigan in Shelter has wardrobe staple written all over it.

This pattern is part of Michele Wang’s CAPSULE Collection for Brooklyn Tweed. You can purchase all patterns in this collection as an ebook at brooklyntweed.com


This cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up and sewn together. The button/buttonhole band is picked up around the front edges and back neck edge and worked flat.
