Product description

With two closure options and an elegant ribbed collar, Lowra is a polished cardigan destined to become a wardrobe staple. Knit with Brooklyn Tweed Arbor for crisp stockinette stitch and a gentle yet sturdy hand, Lowra has plenty of knitterly appeal, versatility and timelessness. 

The fronts, back and sleeves of the Lowra cardigan are knit separately in flat pieces. The pattern includes instructions for two closure options: a ribbed belt or I-Cord ties. The collar is joined at the back neck using the Joinery Bind Off. The pieces of this cardigan are then sewn together for a tailored fit and durable construction.
