Product description

“A desire for a stylish, modern and graphic knitted jacket inspired this design. I love how crisp and clean cables look in Shelter yarn, and wanted to explore the idea of working cables that never actually cross. Rather than a traditional cabled look, the result is more linear, like lines drawn on a chalkboard. The high neckline and vertical ribbing of the button band add to the cool, crisp look I was aiming for. This jacket is knit from the top down in one piece with minimal finishing.” − Tanis Lavallée
