Savile Row Cardigan

My trip to NYC is imminent, but I wanted to get this pattern out to you all before I leave! This sweater pattern has been a long time coming – I knit, ripped, knit, ripped and knit to get it right for Rhinebeck last fall, and then just…didn’t work on it for months afterwards. Finally got my act together to shoot it with Jasmine when we met up to do the Map Collection, put together the (rather complex) pattern and here is the result!

Savile Row


A perfect blazer cardigan! Savile Row has curved hems and a shapely waist with a fun ribbon detail. Fastened pockets hold all those little things, and soft notched lapels are polished and classic. Knit seamlessly with set-in sleeves from the bottom up with I-Cord edges. Deep garter stitch cuffs on the sleeves are closed with lots of wee buttons.

Shown in size 37” / 94cm with 2” / 5cm of positive ease.
For the best fit, I suggest choosing a size which will give you 0-2” / 0-5cm of positive ease.

    Lovely! I love the collar and the buttons on the cuffs.
    Are the pockets functional?

    The waist shaping looks incredible–you can definitely see how well it flatters the model, and it’s just so graceful and fem! And all those little details? Gorgeous.

    I really love this.

    It’s beautiful. I love how it looks like a suit from the front, with a nice collar. And then in the back there’s a nice bow for a fun touch. The buttons on the cuffs are a lovely addition as well.

    Love it, love it. I remembered seeing it on your site before I left for Rhinebeck, but when I went back recently, I couldn’t find it. Beautifully done!
