Stretta (hug or embrace) is a versatile cardigan, perfect for layering in any season. It has a longer length, comfortable positive ease, and a draped neckline that will flatter many different figures.

The cardigan is knitted from the top down in one piece; the simple stitches combine for interesting all-over texture and help make this a quick and easy project with minimal finishing. Thanks to the top down construction, the length of the body and the sleeves can be easily customized to just about any length.

Stretta is completely reversible, and although it’s designed to be worn with draped open fronts, it can be belted or pinned with a shawl pin.
