An easy fitting casual garment. Worked with bamboo cotton, it is lightweight and therefore a trans-seasonal garment.

A note on yarn substitution: yarn must be a mix of cotton and other fibre and fit the gauge required. Remember: 100% cotton knitted will stretch out of shape and not bounce back.

This garment features cabling which gives texture and interest. Instructions are detailed on how to do these stitches.

It should also be noted that this garment has been made using larger than ‘normal’ needles for this yarn (6mm compared to 4.5mm)

A rating of “intermediate” has been assigned to this garment due to the cabling and short rows used in its construction.

Additional knitting aids required include:
tape measure, scissors, yarn needle, cable needle and scrap yarn.
