“The Migration sweater is an ode to the sounds I hear standing on my porch drinking coffee early in the morning — sweet chirping from the small birds nesting nearby and the distant cries of those making the journey north.” – Stacey Gerbman
Gull stitch cables, welts, and ladders stamp this handsome unisex cardigan with bold textures. Set-in sleeves and strong vertical lines make for a flattering fit despite the oversized styling. (Although we used a female model in our photo shoot, this sweater fits several of the men in the BT office with less ease for a classic look.) The body is knit flat in a single piece; the sleeves are also knit flat and sewn in. Stitches for the button bands and collar are picked up after seaming and shaped with short rows to create a cozy shawl collar in double rib. Migration is perfect as outerwear in mild seasons or for warming up indoors when the house is chilly. Although it’s shown here in bright Hayloft, this design’s strong patterning would not be lost in dark shades like Soot, Artifact, or Pumpernickel.
