Product description

Dapper styling and a scholarly air make this cardigan at home in grand old libraries and in modern schoolyards. Knit in Shelter, Arlo features a playfully organic lattice of cables that evokes branching trees. Short rows shape a fetching collar from the wide ribbed button bands and turned-back cuffs extend the life of the garment as the child grows. Arlo is truly unisex, but instructions are given for gender-specific button placement according to the knitter’s choice. Sewn construction provides classic polish and durability—though you may find yourself hoping for thin spots requiring suede elbow patches.
