Winter allows us to go for comfort, warmth and coziness. It’s an invitation to fun knitting time!

My inspiration for Talula was the unique pleasure of simplicity. Novice or experienced, any knitter can make it, and reap the rewarding feeling of a self-made wardrobe. Talula is worked seamlessly with a 3-Needle Bind Off at the shoulders. It is worked from the bottom-up with drop shoulders and lots of positive ease for the body, along with tapered sleeves, as a wintery take on boxy shaping. The back is comfortably longer than the front, for extra freedom of movement!

Neck ribbing and i-cord edges complete the sweater for a nicely finished look.
