The Composition Cardigan is knit flat from the bottom up in one piece with yarn held double throughout, then split and knit flat for the fronts and backs with sleeves attached afterwards. A shawl collar finishes a polished look reminiscent of composition books carried by students of all ages. One shoulder has an optional intarsia nameplate, decorated with embroidery once the cardigan is complete. Perfect for a boy or girl, this boxy cardigan will keep your favorite student warm throughout the winter months, or serve as a charming jacket in warmer times. The model, 6 year old Jack, wears a size 6 cardigan with 2-3” inches of positive ease
