“I’ve had this cardigan on my ‘to design’ list for a couple of years. When our design team decided to put together a collection of menswear, I knew it was finally time to make the idea a reality!

Cabled cardigans are one of my most beloved wardrobe items. Their true timelessness makes them so versatile. I love combining them with all manner of outfits for instant coziness, either at home or on the road.” – Jared Flood


  • Sleeves are worked circularly from cuff to underarm. After binding off the underarm stitches, the cap is worked flat.
  • Cardigan Body is worked in one piece for the ribbed hem. Upon completion of the hem, stitches for the front Button Bands are put on a holder to be worked later. The remaining cabled section of the Body is worked in one piece to the underarm.
  • After underarm stitches are bound off for the Body, both Fronts and Back are worked separately to the shoulders. V-neck shaping is worked on each Front.
  • Upon completion of the Body, you will return to your held Button Band stitches and work them separately. Button Bands are worked at a firmer gauge than the cabled portion of fabric. When bands reach the base of the V-neck shaping, you will begin working shaping for the shawl Collar.
  • The shawl Collar is shaped with short rows, seamed together at the Back neck with a Joinery Bind Off. The edge of the Collar is then sewn to the Back Neck edge of garment.
