Designed by Olga Buraya-Kefelian for her Brooklyn Tweed Capsule collection, Apex is an open cardigan featuring braided cables and airy lace. Knit in Shelter, bias fabric creates unexpected angles and intersections with an alluring split at the nape of the neck. The back and fronts are worked flat from charts and the stockinette sleeves are also worked flat and sewn on. Brooklyn Tweed considers this pattern a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty and offers it as a hard copy only. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, click Product Details, above.
