Brooklyn Tweed Migration
Cabled Cardigan with Shawl Collar.
“The Migration sweater is an ode to the sounds I hear standing on my porch drinking coffee early in the morning — sweet chirping from the small birds nesting nearby and the distant cries of those making the journey north.” – Stacey Gerbman
Gull stitch cables, welts, and ladders stamp this handsome unisex cardigan with bold textures. Set-in sleeves and strong vertical lines make for a flattering fit despite the oversized styling. The body is knit flat in a single piece; the sleeves are also knit flat and sewn in. Stitches for the button bands and collar are picked up after seaming and shaped with short rows to create a cozy shawl collar in double rib. Migration is perfect as outerwear in mild seasons or for warming up indoors when the house is chilly.
