This design is an updated version of the shawl collared cardigans from the 1940s/50s worn by male movie stars or a favorite grandpa. I played with a more modern take on the classic. New and interesting cables, a fit that skims your curves and ends where your jeans start, and a gorgeous variegated yarn add a little twist to the original.
