Catbells is a squishy, textured cardigan with sleek lines and super simple top-down construction. The body is knit in a garter lace texture, while stockinette stitch anchors the pockets and sleeves. The long length and slightly fitted sleeves make this super easy to wear, and will look fantastic thrown over your favourite t-shirt and jeans. There’s a few key perks to knitting this cardigan, including very little purling (only the pockets and hems!) and no button band finishing (it’s finished while you knit!). Watch this cardigan fly off your needles right on to your body, then stay there until next spring.
