I noticed this classic, ladylike Pearl Cardigan on the Anthropologie site; one of my favorite clothing stores. If you like DIY projects, this might be a great one, and you don’t have to be a knitter to obtain this look. Pearl beads on garments is a hot trend for Fall/Winter 2017. You could either purchase a basic cardigan or knit one up, then attach the beads. Either way, I think a mohair blend with silk, or fine alpaca or merino wool would be a good yarn choice. If you know how to knit with beads, and the yarn isn’t too thick, knitting in the pearls is a doable option. I may give this DIY a try and create my own beaded look.
