Chicane Cardigan

It has truly been a year of sweaters! After this summer’s release of Shapes + Form, I  am excited to introduce Chicane,  featured in Wool People 4 from Brooklyn Tweed.


Chicane is a simple zip-up cardigan with cycling-inspired details for both men and women. When I was designing Chicane, I thought about creating a garment that both my husband and I could wear, something aerodynamic and unfussy. The shaped elbows are knit sideways and provide extra flexibility in a critical area.


The cardigan pattern has sizes ranging from 34″ to 58″ in both the men’s and women’s versions. The women’s sizes have waist shaping and a slightly different fit to the armholes and shoulders for a more flattering fit.


Shelter is so different from the sock yarns that I ordinarily find myself working with. It’s light, lofty, and unmistakably wooly. I really like the complexity of the colors in Shelter as the color play within each strand of yarn creates a tweedy effect with lots of depth. Simple knitting really shows off the beauty of this yarn.


It’s been a pleasure working with Jared Flood and the entire Brooklyn Tweed team. As always, they have put out a great collection of pieces from designers all over the world. I’ve been checking out the Wool People 4 lookbook this morning and I love the variety of shapes and textures.
