Todd Snyder

Shawl Cable Cardigan in Ivory

Size

Todd designed this lighter take on the heavyweight classic for those who like the rugged good looks of a shawl cardigan but want to be able to wear one year round or use it as a layering piece. All the classic design details of a shawl cardigan are accounted for (genuine horn buttons, welt pockets, rick-rack stitching on the front and back) but in a blend of merino, alpaca and organic cotton. The handfeel is luxe and soft making this a great sweater for layering under a topcoat when the weather is cold and then layering over a tee or dress shirt in spring or on summer nights at the beach. This is also an understudy for a blazer when you want to make a dress shirt and tie look relaxed at a party or the office. A note on the stitches:On traditional fisherman’s sweaters, the cable stitch was meant to be a depiction of the fisherman's ropes, and represents a wish for a fruitful day at sea. The diamond stitch reflects the small fields of the Aran Island where the style first appeared. These diamonds are sometimes filled with Irish moss stitch, depicting the seaweed that was used to fertilise the barren fields and produce a good harvest. Hence the diamond stitch is a wish for success and wealth. So, now your sweater just became an ice-breaker.
