Designed by Jacqueline Cieslak, Plover is a lightweight cardigan in all-over half brioche stitch.
PLOVER is a featherweight cardigan with clean lines and quiet texture. It is named for the birds whose cheery presence kept us company during the memorable photoshoot on Popham beach. Knit in a rustic single ply at a loose gauge, this versatile sweater is just the thing for cool mornings on the coast or chilly evenings around a campfire. The pattern is worked seamlessly from the top down, allowing you to try it on as you go to ensure the perfect fit.
