  • Bones - Cardigan

    Bones is the perfect outer layer for crisp fall days! Worked up in a DK weight yarn held double, it borders the line between cardigan and jacket in the best possible way. It’s knit in pieces from the bottom up (making it easier to carry around as a project!), and features a rhythmic, intuitive 4x4 slip stitch rib pattern throughout the body. The drop-shoulder sleeves are knit in ribbing, making them extra cosy. Patch pockets and a shawl collar with buttons provide the finishing touches to this beautiful addition to your wardrobe!
