Joey is the perfect weekend cardigan. It is fitted through the shoulders with plenty of room in the body and hips. This along with the vertical stripes makes it flattering while comfortable. Make it with a plant fiber based yarn like linen or hemp for warm weather or a wool based yarn for cool weather. Either way you will want to wear it all the time. I made the sample with Shibui’s wonderful Reed which has drape to die for! Joey is a boyish nickname for Josephine capturing the mix of sophisticated styling with relaxing comfort. Also it means Jehovah increases, can’t go wrong with that!
