The coziest sweater imaginable, Parker is a knock-out knee-length cardigan with a wide fisherman’s collar featuring Purl Soho’s Good Wool. Once the temperature drops, you’re not going to want to take this off.

The main cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up and seamed for necessary structure. The collar is worked in two pieces and joined with a special bind-off detail, then sewn around cardigan fronts/neckline.
