How to Order

Design:Coco Cardigan

A Chevron of Mitres, styled into a slight A line

Jane has created this stunning Cardigan with just a touch of A line shaping, which allows flow over the hip but still brings with it a neat fit, like a jacket, over the shoulders. The longer variegated version of this design is listed in Coats and Kimono range.

Mitres are so simple and so rewarding: they're just stripes in garter stitch with a simple decrease. There are no seams in the body of the garment, except for the shoulder seams!
