Product Description

(muh-'til-duh). noun [usu. as object]

is a top-down knit, color-block, yoke collared cardigan that looks right either in the country or paired with skinny coloured jeans for that of the moment downtown look. Matilda’s braided patterns are achieved sans cable needle -- allowing you to zip along! Its highly textured surface is constructed through a series of twisted stitches and fancy knits & purls.

ORIGIN  New York City, pattern written by the Jones & Vandermeer design team.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL   Advanced (while not difficult, Matilda utilizes short row shaping in the yoke section).
