Looking for that little something to grab on those cool fall mornings? Something warm and cozy but at the same time sharp and put together? Lucy in the Sky is for you!
Knit in a super soft, washable merino, you’ll reach for this cardigan time and time again. Dress is up over a crisp white oxford, or just throw it on over that old t-shirt for an instant lift.

Lucy is knit bottom-up in one piece, and features a diamond texture pattern on the body, smooth stockinette sleeves, raglan shaping and knit-in bands. The diamond purl pattern is easy to memorize and flies along. You won’t know how you ever did without it!
