The Northerly cardigan for women is feminine and warm for crisp, cold days. Depending on how much you layer it, this zipper cardigan keeps you warm indoors or can be worn as a jacket with a scarf artfully wrapped around your neck. It features a bodice cut from felted cocoa brown lambs wool, a structured waistband of a fair isle that I felted for abstract rich pattern, ochre lambs wool “ribs,” and a gathered peplum of soft, fine merino wool in rust. The peplum is contoured to dip down in back for a flattering fit. I crafted the sleeve cuffs to match the waist detailing, while the stand-up collar is two layers of super-soft, hand-pleated emerald cashmere. Yum!

SIZE X-LARGE. (16-18) The model is a size small, so this sweater is very over-sized on her. This piece would look best on a tall woman and/or one with a long torso.

Measured across sweater front:
Bust: 21.5”
Waist: 19”
Hips: 19' or free, depending on where the waistband hits
Length: 30” in front; 34” in back
Sleeve length: 25”

Northerly comes to you from Foundry Design, a one-woman factory of original styles hand-crafted from recycled fabrics I find during my regular trips to thrift stores in the Chicago area. I use only the best sweater knits to create new sweaters, most of which are inspired by my primary vocation as a writer and lover of the arts.

To ensure your sweater looks great for a long time, please hand wash it in cold water using a gentle detergent such as Woolite, Ivory Snow or an organic soap. Or, dry clean.
