Fall Creek





worsted weight yarn


Fall Creek by Emily Greene is our instant classic for everyone. Made in our soft and durable Forge, this cardigan is a year round favorite, featuring Emily’s trademark ribs and intersecting diagonal lines.

This cardigan is a genderless design; Emily used the ASTM standards of measurement for men, so carefully assess the schematic before deciding on a size. This cardigan is meant to be worn with 2-4” of positive ease, as shown on Del, but Britt is wearing it at 8” [20.25 cm] of positive ease and we love it with a cozy, gently oversized vibe, too!
