Magnolia is the result of a need in my wardrobe!…

After a couple of years of designing all kinds of things, I really felt the need for a good basic long cardigan.
I love fitted sweaters, I love the complexity of patterned stitches, but lately, all I’ve been looking forward to wear is something that makes me feel comfortable and relaxed, but pretty and feminine at the same time.

Magnolia incorporates modern shaping into an all time classic: the long cardigan that covers your bottom (we know we all love those!).
With an interesting construction at the shoulders, but only using basic stitch patterns, this top-down seamless cardi knits up quickly enough for you to wear it this upcoming fall, and it’s perfect for your solids and variegateds.

Sizes:
XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL).
This cardi is intended to be worn with a bit of positive ease (recommended 4”), which is built into each size.
Shown in size M, on a 36” bust.
