“Post” is the cardigan I designed for my postpartum time.
It would also work for:

post-vacation with children
post-crazy time at work

Post is the cardigan you reach for when you have worked your tush off, and now it’s time to relax, and reflect, and say “whew!” It’s the cardigan you want to wear when you’re drinking your coffee or tea or hot chocolate, and thinking about absolutely nothing…because you can.

Knitted in one piece, from the top down, with the reverse side of stockinette stitch facing outward with a floppy alpaca/merino yarn with lots of give. The ribbing adds a lasting hug, in case no one is there to give you one, and the small hidden pockets are just the right size for hiding a Dove chocolate or store a pacifier. Chocolate is pretty essential for those “post” times.
