Build Your Wardrobe with the Flor Cardigan

This sleek wrap cardigan is perfect for layering, adding a touch of polish to any outfit. It’s semi-fitted and comes with two lengths, hitting at the high hip or upper thigh.

Sew it up in medium-weight knit fabrics, like French terry, merino wool, and ribbing. Or pick a lightweight sweater knit or jersey.

Jamie is wearing a size 14 Flor cardigan, blended to a 16 at the hip, with 1 1/2” added to the length, 2 3/4” added to the sleeve length, and 1” added to the sleeve width. Her measurements are 40”, 34 1/2”, 45 3/8” and she is 5’ 10 1/2”.

Shop for Fabric

When you pick fabric for the Flor cardigan, start by thinking about your silhouette. For a soft, flowy cardigan, pick something lightweight, like rib knit, sweater knit, or rayon jersey. For a cozy layer, choose French terry, sweatshirt fleece, or merino jersey.
