This warm, cabled cardigan is found in Interweave Knits Winter 2016 along with 18 patterns for men, women, and weddings.  The Bray Cardigan has a silhouette that evokes the tailored lines of an equestrian riding jacket, but the look is softened by the luscious cable work. Structure is integral to this cardigan; it’s worked in pieces and seamed to prevent stretching. The collar and buttonband are picked up and knitted. Crosshatch leather buttons are the perfect finish for this rich garment.

Gift Set includes Interweave Knits Winter 2016 (pattern inside), selected yarn, and a total of 8 buttons that are .75". After placing your order, please select your buttons by responding to your purchase email. 

PRE-ORDER now available in all colors of the lines listed below. Please contact us prior to placing your order for color availability, and allow at least 7 business days for shipping to your location.
