Product description

Melissa Wehrle is known for elevating basic shapes with just the right details. She brings that meticulous attention to detail to Truss, a contemporary, drop-shoulder cardigan with flattering ribbed side panels. Decorative eyelets follow pyramids of ribbing, echoing the lines of the V-neck and providing subtle shaping at the waist. The split hem begins with ribbing worked separately for the fronts and back; the work is then joined to knit the body in one piece to the underarms. The back and fronts are again worked separately to the shoulders; sleeves are knit flat and seamed in. Boasting tidy lines, this cardigan’s modern yet classic versatility makes for easy styling.

    • The sleeves are worked flat and sewn into the armholes. The collar and front bands are picked up and worked after garment assembly.
