walnut / Pam Allen

Walnut is such a classic cardigan—crew neck, buttons, pockets, long sleeves. And yet, Pam has added just a few details that update the garment to current tastes in knitting and wearing: We love the reverse stockinette stitch in the body, the deep half-brioche split hem with deeper length at the back, the exposed seam along the shoulders, and the modified dolman/drop shoulder construction found throughout the collection that provides an easy fit. Perfection!
