Wrap up in subtle colorwork reminiscent of fine needlepoint. This jacquard long cardigan in five shades of Loft features chevrons worked with purl stitches to interlock the colors and create intriguing texture. Tapestry is worked in the round with steeks, which are fully enclosed by the knit-on edging during finishing. The wrap-front torso is worked without shaping and is designed for lots of ease. Set-in half sleeves keep the proportions balanced. Belt your cardigan closed or let the fronts hang open as you prefer.
