A light cardigan or jacket has always been my faithful companion while facing not only the mild winter of Mumbai but also the chilly indoor areas in summer. It’s never cold enough here to button up though and I roll those sleeves up when it gets too warm.
Though I have worked on a few designs over the last year, a cardigan, my first choice in knitwear, has only now taken shape, hence the name First Love.

A long sleeved, textured and seamless cardigan worked from the bottom up with slight waist shaping and an icord edging.
The sleeve caps are shaped with short rows and worked in the round down towards the wrist.
