Cardigans have always been classic and comfortable,
but they've never been cooler—or wilder, for that matter—than they are right now. There are so many iterations of button-up sweaters from brands big and small. Along with various techniques for creating them—from patchworking and fluffy mohair knits to hand-crocheted. But the best ones all have one thing in common: Bold colors, patterns and prints, giving some new sartorial life to this run-of-the-mill garment.
You've probably witnessed your favorite athlete walking down the team's tunnel or celebrities standing on a street corner in some eye-catching prints. One brand that has been delivering the best hand-crocheted cardigans for the past few seasons is New York-based Corridor. Founded in 2013 by Dan Snyder, the brand makes easy-wearing essentials like cool graphic tees, Italian denim and some of the best knitwear in the game. Everything (including the textiles) is designed in-house with ethically and environmentally sustainable workshops specializing in the finest quality weaving, knitting, and sewing. Case in point: their popular hand-crocheted cardigan.
Hand-crocheted from chunky cotton yarn, the open-knit design is made entirely by hand by a Peruvian women's collective. Perhaps that's why it looks like something your great-grandmother made while baking your favorite chocolate chip cookies. And like wrapping yourself up in a cozy blanket, the sweater is durable and hardy, yet breathable for easy layering over a T-shirt or wearing underneath a winter coat. But it's not a subtle look. Although the print is reminiscent of a bouquet during the springtime—it doesn't mean you can't sport it while it's cold. We asked designer (and music lover) Snyder what he's pairing with his label's cardigan these days.

“When you just want to be comfortable. The morning can be brisk and the line at Bittersweet is always long. This is an easy way to blend in and stand out just like the neighborhood itself.”

“Big fits for big music, right? The structures are aglow in visuals so why not become a human visual too?”

“Feel like a legend witnessing the legend herself in a gorgeous but lowkey outfit. Remember, it's warmer down there during that time of year.”
