Product description

Melissa Wehrle is known for elevating basic shapes with just the right details, as she did with Eaves in Wool People 8. Now she gives the boxy drop-shoulder cardigan a contemporary lift with flattering ribbed side panels. Decorative eyelets follow the pyramids of the ribbing, echoing the lines of the V-neck and providing subtle shaping at the waist.

The split hem begins with ribbing worked separately for the fronts and back; the work is then joined to knit the body in one piece to the underarms.  The back and fronts are again worked separately to the shoulders; sleeves are knit flat and seamed in.

Truss should fall just to your high hip to keep the comfortable shape looking neat. Pair it with slim jeans or dress it up with a sleek high-waisted pencil skirt for the office.
