Ancon: I love the idea of wearing this cardigan over a sweet skirt, or tailored jeans and tank. Pair with some boat shoes to enforce the nautical feel of the garter stitch stripes. I love that the garter stitch stripes are worked with the traditional wrong-side as the right-side to add just a touch of whimsy to an otherwise preppy cardigan. Play with different colors to make this design all your own!

The Designer: Klever Knits was created to enable others to knit interesting, yet classic pieces. My design aesthetic tends towards the classic, but a hint modern edge. Neutral palettes of creams and greys tend to be my go-to’s, but I am happy to throw in pops of color here and there!
