Product description

Knit up a smoking jacket-style cardigan in Quarry for a plush and cozy outerlayer this autumn. The overall fabric of moss stitch creates gentle texture that shows off Quarry’s flecks and striations, and a straight torso with raglan shoulders makes Tamarack easy to wear. Choose between a short ribbed button band for the fronts or a shawl collar button band shaped with short rows. Optional patch pockets complete the look.
