Brrr, the recent chilly weather calls for some squishy knits to curl up in and I have just the pattern for you: my “Hills Cardigan” from the Interweave Knitscene Fall 2017 issue!

It is worked in knit-1-below style brioche so that you have no yarn overs to deal with and the added garter stitch squares give it a modern and updated look. This technique creates a light and fluffy fabric perfect for trapping your warmth.

The easy construction and easy to remember stitch pattern turn it into a great quick knit to have it ready in no time for the cold season.
