History – Cardigan, cardie.com.auHistory

A cardigan is a type of knitted jumper (Australian) or sweater (USA) traditionally made of wool with an open front.

Cardigans are named after James Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, who was also a British Army Major General.

According to Richard Rutt in his book ”A History of Hand Knitting,” Brudenell started wearing the cardigan during his later life when he lived in the English countryside at Northamptonshire.
