Dalit Cardigan PATTERN

Dalit Cardigan PATTERN

7.00

This perfect over-sized layering cardigan was inspired by dry clay riverbeds, reflective still water, and the glow of late summer. Dalit is worked flat in single piece from the top down, featuring beautiful brioche increases to shape the yoke, and contrasting textures to highlight the tide of shaping. It is worn with ample ease for a cozy, shrug-style fit.
