THE FIBRE CO.
If you love classic styling with a modern flair, then Arela by The Fibre Co. is the pattern for you. This sweater features a subtle allover wicker pattern stitch on the front and back, creating gentle, sophisticated texture. Raglan shoulder shaping flows into Stockinette sleeves that end in a short ribbed section to prevent curling. The surprise comes in the back, which is buttoned along the full length! To wear as shown on the model, unbutton the top two to create an open-back effect, or button the whole way. This versatile cardigan has boatneck collar shaping, so it can also be worn with the buttonband in front.
