Sometimes, you’ve got to do what your heart desires, even if it’s loud, crazy and a bit wild. Rebel Rebel is a fingering-weight cardigan perfect for that splash of electric colour your fingers (and your heart) have been itching to cast on.

Go on, rebel a little. Go bright, go crazy, go speckled yarn, go angled-neckline, cute boxy shape, hidden pockets, three-quarter sleeves and split garter cuffs! Rebel Rebel is fantastic over jeans, skirts, leggings and dresses (even torn dresses). She’s a brilliant layering piece and oh-so-soft and comfortable. (Because, even though she’s a rebel, she’s a super-comfy rebel.)

Knitted in one piece from the top down, with front bands worked as you go, Rebel Rebel is a simple knit, perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners. Welcome to your wild side!
