kenobi jacket
Varying texture patterns, asymmetry, and clean
edges make a great casual jacket. Norah
Gaughan designed this cardigan for men, but
we found that women love it for themselves—in
fact, we used a photo of the sample on a
female model for the cover of the Spring 2007
issue. Roll up the cuffs and you’re good to go.

opulent raglan
A lofty alpaca blend drapes beautifully in this
top-down seamless raglan. Its heathered coloring
deepens the richness of the cable—an opulent
stitch that adorns the center front panel. Wendy
Bernard worked up this design in answer to our call
for medieval-inspired projects. The flared cuff alludes
to the lacy cuffs of medieval and rococo blouses, a
reference echoed by the squared neckline.
