Product description

A cocoon cardigan in openwork fabric offers casual style you can dress up or down. Quarry’s leavened, unspun structure renders netting stitch fabric as a doughy lattice, warm but well ventilated. Wide stockinette edges are allowed to curl for an unstudied effect that invites layering over office wear or lounging with a favorite film and a bowl of popcorn. Bracelet-length dolman sleeves and a boxy shape create a comfortable, broad silhouette; use the hip measurement to select a size that will allow easy movement. The netting stitch back and fronts are knit flat, with additional stitches cast on to form contiguous sleeves; stitches are picked up to work the stockinette front bands, hem, and cuffs after assembly.
