AIMÉE
by Joji Locatelli

Joji designed this cardigan in tribute to her friend Aimée – the Paris-based dyer and force behind La Bien Aimée.


This seemingly simple cardigan could easily be missed among so many other designs. But the color blocking of five bold yet beautifully matched colors make this cardigan stand out in the crowd.

We’ve created our take on this pattern with 6 beautifully curated color combinations in Caravan by Crave Yarn, including our take on the original colorway and 5 other lovely options.


Aimée was designed with significant ease – 12”-16” – depending on how you like to wear your cardigans. It is worked seamlessly from the top down and the shoulders are tailored with set-in sleeves that are picked up and worked in the round. Button bands are the final touch, lending a professional, finished look to the final garment.
Along with the ample ease built into the sizing, this cardigan is size-inclusive with 9 sizes and finished bust circumferences ranging from 41” – 76”. We know that’s a lot of yarn, so we’ve created a progressive discount for small, medium and large yarn-only kits. Save 10% on the small kit, 15% on the medium kit and 20% on the large kit compared to the open stock price.

The sample garment shown was NOT knit in the yarn we have selected for the kit. All Garment PhotoS © Joji Locatelli.
