This month's String promo designed by Lidia Karabinech, the “Boyfriend Diamond Cardigan” was created with String’s exclusive Classica Bulky. 

If you want a super cuddly and lofty garment for this time of the year, the cardigan was worked on a US 10.5 needle. This luxury keepsake boyfriend cardigan was designed to be unisex with a relaxed soft construction, but not over-sized like some boyfriend cardis.

Lidia’s inspiration came from two of our favorite designers; Chanel and their classic quilted design and Anya Cole for Hania. Playing with the pattern stitch, the result was an elongated taller diamond creating a flattering silhouette possibilities.

Works great with jeans or slacks. Wear it with a leather jumper or skirt. For work, layer it with a collared shirt. On the casual side, we see it with a cami, buttoned shirt (maybe a flannel).

Offered in String Classica Bulky (100% cashmere) and Filatura di Crosa Zara 14 (100% merino).

Get yourself ready to master this design with a couple techniques in our video tutorials: buttonholes on a ribbed edge and picking up stitches. Watch the videos below or (here and here).
