Description

Veronik Avery’s cabled cardigan, Hilt, explores lateral texture and negative space, with braided horseshoe motifs playing across the body and dolman half sleeves but leaving the shoulders intriguingly accented by the calm of reverse stockinette. Garter stitch cuffs and an exposed bind-off at the center back highlight intriguing construction while a continuous band of garter stitch makes a clean and practical finish. Brooklyn Tweed considers Hilt a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
