Its creator was James Thomas Brudenell, known for being the seventh Earl of Cardigan, a town in the country of Ceredigion in Wales, United Kingdom. The lieutenant of the British Army who led the battle of Balaclava he was the first to create the predecessor of the knit cardigan, a vest in wool fabrics to avoid the most intense cold of the other regions of Europe.

It was made to be a knit cardigan with thick long sleeves. When this comfortable garment became popular, it became an important reference of universities such as Cambridge, Oxford and Harvard. 

Designer Coco Chanel put a modern twist on the knit cardigan by totally revamping itself, giving it a more relaxed silhouette with an opening in the front and buttons to adjust the way that will best suit the style of the contemporary woman, becoming a comfortable garment to wear daily. During the 50s the knit cardigan was one of the most desired garments to wear at events and more casual dinners, Marilyn Monroe was in charge of styling and creating the sexiest and most elegant outfits.
