Komori.

This pattern was inspired by one of my all time favourite movie: Little Forest. And more particularly, a specific scene where the main protagonist goes in the forest to forage for chestnuts.

The cardigan is worked in two parts: the bottom part first which consists of the beautiful bobble, lace and cable portion, that is knit flat like a scarf.
Then stitched are picked up to knit the back and the sleeves. The sides are seamed to create the opening for the armhole, then both sleeves are knit in the round.
