I’ve got four faves in the new collection of Drops patterns and am anxiously waiting for them to get uploaded, so I can start digging through my stash and making plans.
I feel a bit overwhelmed by the variety of stitch patterns in this jacket, but imagine replacing some of them with stockinette or garter. The overall lines of the piece would become the main featureâ€”and they’re darling.
This cardigan strikes me as one of those basic pieces that one could wear over and over again. I can imagine it in cotton for spring and in alpaca or angora for winter.
I’d like to have this cardigan tossed in the back seat of my car for impromptu beach walks. I know some people would prefer long sleeves on a garment this bulky, but I like to keep my sleeves short or 3/4-length for the sake of thermoregulation.
And isn’t this one a beauty? I could pull it on over almost anything and look both polished and comfortable at the same time.
