This cardigan articulates a simple, basic silhouette with finely wrought details: narrow twist-stitch panels adorn the front bands and saddle shoulders, while picot-edged hems give an unexpectedly finished look to a rustic classic. The designer uses a traditional Scottish-style tweed wool with both heathery depth and colored neps to make a cardigan that is at once soft and hard-wearing.
