DKNY's Cozy

If you haven't already check out this cardigan thingy from Donna Karan and the video that goes with it, look for the 12 ways to wear it in the sidebar at the size. Also take a good look at the price and have a good think about the sewing time involved.

Erica Bunker fashionista extraordinaire did a nice version of this last summer and posted pictures on her blog

I am posting a couple of pattern thoughts here, I think the Vogue is closest, and I think too that some fine tuning of the length and hem shape might be necessary to get the DKNY look.

Sort of cooler when you see all the variations in the video than on the pattern envelope, a definite low risk project I think I will try to see if it makes me more stylish.

What do you think?

What you posted was very logical. But, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I am not suggesting your information isn't good, but what
if you added a headline that grabbed people's
attention? I mean "DKNY's Cozy" is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article titles to grab people to click.
You might add a video or a related picture or
two to get readers interested about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
