Meet the Caroline Jacket

Caroline Jacket is a cropped jacket-style cardigan inspired by the classic boxy designs of the 90s. Starting from the lace hem band with stitches picked up and knit along the side of the lace to work upwards for the body, Caroline Jacket is worked in one piece and packed with carefully considered design details that give a crisp, neat finish.
