The Celia Cardigan, featuring flowing mock cables, lace, and texture, is inspired by Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, a flower commonly known as the Celia plant. This oversized, long cardigan, with dramatic draped fronts and wide-rib edgings, is a comfortable, relaxed sweater made for long nights reading and knitting by the fire. It combines mock-cable texture with a simple four-piece construction for a deceptively simple but engaging project.
