Talcott Cardigan

Find Talcott exclusively at Kitterly.

The Talcott Cardigan started with, and is inspired by, the yarn. Felted Tweed Aran is one of the coziest yarns that I know, and when I opened the box of yarn from Kitterly, I just knew I had to work it up into something cabled and modern. Talcott features a nice mix of Stockinette (for ease of modification and shaping) and modern, graphic cables. A wider crew neckline, cables that reach the bottom of the sweater, and a deep button band finish updating this classic silhouette. It is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed for stability, with set-in sleeves.
