Gus

Gus

from 176.00

An open-front cardigan featuring Woolfolk’s LUFT* yarn.

Gus is worked from the bottom up in pieces with beautiful details such as loose inset pockets and full-fashioned back shoulder shaping. The front bands are worked continuously using a combination of ribbing and incorporated I-cord edge stitches that travel up through the collar. While there is ample ease built into the body of the cardigan, the shoulders and sleeves are tailored to keep the garment squarely in place.

*Luft is an airy combination of Ultimate Merino® in an organic cotton cage (GOTS certified) which creates a garment that has a lot of drape without adding a lot of weight. Colors shown in photo are: L6 (black), L5 (navy), L4 (ochre), L3 (light blue), L2 (medium gray) and L1 (light gray).
