This piece is the perfect combination of being fashion forward with an every-day essential wardrobe staple. It features a unique design elements such as a collar that’s attached to the body as you go. Using Farm Twist held doubled creates a luxurious texture with extra depth that made the color look even deeper.
Josh likes to incorporate new and innovative techniques into each collection he makes, which is exactly what he’s done for the construction of the collar in the Kindling Cardigan.
The body is knit in one piece to the armholes, and then separated with fronts and back worked separately. Sleeves are knit separately and sewn to the body.
