DEGEN Collection | Fall 2022

Lindsay Degen of DEGEN puts the focus on fit proportion and vibrant color combinations in this playful collection for adults. Each garment or accessory explores a different technique -- including stripes, brioche, zigzags, and more.


As shown, MiZZoni is a fun and funky tank -- but change the colors and choose a size with positive ease and you’ll get a dapper vest. Subtle details add up to a refined look: tubular cast-on, short-rows at the transition from ribbing to chevron stitch (and again at the shoulder shaping), foldover neck ribbing. The pattern includes a blank stripe template for you to color in to try out your own ideas!
