Laurel is the quintessential cozy cardigan, perfect for snuggling into whether you are staying in snuggling by the fire or headed out for an adventure on a chilly day. Laurel includes no waist shaping, instead allowing a bold back cable and seed stitch to give the fabric just the right amount of pull without being too snug. The sleeves are oversized in length and slightly in width to allow for free movement and for rolling up the sleeves at the cuff. This cardigan is knit using Equus from Shalimar Yarns, which provides not only an amazing stitch definition, but the 100% Merino creates a finished cardigan that you will want to live in.

Laurel is knit seamlessly from the bottom up, and has raglan sleeves that are worked flat then seamed to the body. The collar is picked up along the edges of the fronts and neck.
