The Selaron Cardigan was inspired by the mosaic steps of Lapa, in Rio de Janeiro, created by the Chilean artist Jorge Selarón. In 1990, the artist retiled his front steps with broken tiles in the colors of the Brazilian flag. He continued on with both scavenged and gifted titles, eventually completing over 215 steps measuring over 400 feet.
The Selaron Cardigan is a super-oversized, drop-shoulder cardigan with a unique and unexpected construction beginning with the big-statement cabled panel of the back. The remainder of the knitting is worked in sections, and the entire sweater is finished off professionally with an i-cord trim.
