Woolen Cardigan with Pockets

Added Dec 6, 2010

By burdastyle

New York, New Yo...






Cardigans make for a key layering piece in a New York city winter. This week we fused together BurdaStyle member littleweasel’s hand-drafted Flutter Sleeve Cardigan and our very own Karen Cardigan to create a cozy long-sleeved woolen cardi fit for colder days.

Modeled with LOVE by Rachel, BurdaStyle’s Community Manager, and styled with a pure white blouse, black crinkled mini and polka dot tights. We’re loving the look and the endless ways you can incorporate this piece into your own wardrobe.

Material Notes

2 5/8 yards Wool, Knits or Jersey
