Layla is a kimono-inspired cardigan layering piece featuring contrasting color skinny stripes and knit up with worsted-weight yarn. With my favorite Quince & Co colors Gingerbread & Honey, I’m feeling a bit of a 70’s vibe, which is what inspired the name (you know, that great song by Eric Clapton/Derek and the Dominos).

Knit all in one-piece from the bottom-up, Layla will be your go-to layering piece this fall and winter!
