“There’s something so comforting to me about seeing a man in a smoking jacket-style cardigan. I wanted to give the option of wearing the collar up, or folding it down for a shawled-collared effect. The deep ribbing at the placket keeps this cardigan casual and wearable for any occasion.” – Michele Wang

Garment pieces are knit flat from the bottom up and sewn together. The collar is picked up from the Front edges and Back neck edge, and worked in 2x2 Ribbing to create the placket and collar.
