TYPE 742 WOOL PATTERN CARDIGAN
Type 742 cardigans are hand frame knitted in Scotland from natural jute or rope-dyed indigo cotton. The knitting pattern is taken from a traditional lambswool men’s cardigan, however the non-traditional yarns used for this piece, taken from rope-making and denim warp respectively, make for a more relaxed, unusual, garment. The front is fastened with white real mother of pearl buttons (on the jute version) and cream corozo nut buttons (on the indigo version).
The indigo yarn skews clockwise, as with rinsed unsanforized denim jeans.
