Charpentier Cardigan (2021B)


Spring Make-It-Now 2021

Our Spring '21 Make It Now collection features stitch textures -- mesh, cables, seed, eyelets, and knit-purl combinations in embossed relief -- in light fabrics and soft colors that highlight March's transitional weather.

-

As March is also Women's History Month, the pattern names nod to women who've won the Nobel Prize: Grazia Deledda (Literature, 1926), Emmanuelle Charpentier (Chemistry, 2020), Shirin Ebadi (Peace, 2003), Gertrude Elion (Medicine, 1988), Ada Yonath (Chemistry, 2009), and Alice Munro (Literature, 2013).

/////

The deep v-neck of the Charpentier Cardigan flows continuously into crossover body. Knit in one piece from the top-down, the design features a lace panel that begins at the shoulder for the sleeves and at the bust line for the body.

*Please note the stitch pattern is charted.*
