A fitted shape, a short length and a long tie add something new to this shawl collared, V necked tweed cardigan. Collins from BabyCocktails has classic aran motifs that are echoed on both the fronts and back, and textured seed stitch panels keep the attention towards the center. The collar folds over and continues down the body, and the off center tie wraps one side over the other in a modern twist. This is best knit in a wooly tweed, which has the body to stay put nicely and looks great in the cables!
