“I love when simple shapes create chic looks. This draped-front garment is merely a rectangle with strategically placed armholes and set-in sleeves. Though it couldn’t be easier to knit, the silhouette is stylish and memorable. Equally suited for an outing in the city or a comfortable Sunday at home, the cardigan quotes stitch patterns from its companion design, the Eternity Scarf by Michele Wang (also featured in our Fall 12 collection). Due to its unconventional shape, “to fit” measurements have been provided to help you in choosing the proper size.” – Jared Flood


  • Garment is worked flat in three pieces: Body and two Sleeves.
  • Body is worked in one piece to armholes. When dividing for armholes, Body will be worked in 3 separate pieces. Upon completion of armholes, Body will resume again as a single piece.
  • Garment pieces are wet-blocked to schematic measurements before assembly. After blocking, sleeves are set-in, then sleeve seams are sewn.
