The Jaquetta Cardigan is a play on a traditional double-breasted pea coat—worked top-down in one piece and requiring no seaming. Ribbing is worked along the front lapel/collar, and along the hems and cuffs. Stepped ribbing is worked along the side “seams” to produce custom waist shaping. Simple yet classic!
