An airy cardigan with styling borrowed from men’s wear is a modern ideal for the transitional seasons. Worked in Loft at a loose gauge and blocked to drape beautifully, this weightless layering piece conveys simplicity without sacrificing smart details. The tunic length, deep ribbing, and vertical rivulets of twisted stitches flatter a variety of figures. Seamed construction adds stability to the light fabric and puts the cherry on this cardigan’s professional good looks.
