Cawdor is inspired by autumn when the last of the bilberries and the first of the mushrooms signal the end of summer. As the the trees turn, thoughts wander to cosy evenings by the fire or frosty walks kicking piles of leaves. This jumper, comfortable but also flattering, is just as at ease doing whatever you do to beat those winter blues.

Cawdor is knit in the round to the armholes, and then worked flat and seamed at the shoulders. Sleeve stitches are then picked up and worked in the round. The asymmetric reversible cable continues up through the cowl neck, which can be worn open or buttoned shut.
