Designed by Amy Gunderson
The Kerf sweater is a great example of this collection’s chic, yet rustic vibe. From the undulating and nature-inspired cable pattern to the fitted design, this one feels right at home outside of a mountain cabin just as much as it does at a Sunday family brunch outing. You’re going to want more than one color of this one, that’s for sure!
This sweater is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. After seaming, the neckband stitches are picked up and knit in the round.
