Bridie by Bristol Ivy is a loose, swingy cocoon that’s meant to be thrown on and lived in. Its simple construction of two identical pieces worked flat and joined at center back, then closing the cast-on edges to form the sleeves makes it a refreshingly simple knit. Geometric stitch patterns provide a pleasing contrast to the soft hand of the fabric that Quince Kestrel creates.
The Bridie Sweater Kit includes printed pattern and yarn. Needles sold separately.
Skills required: Long-tail cast on, three-needle bind off, cables, decreasing, working in the round.
