Cross Pockets

BY JUTTA VON HINTERM STEIN

A relaxed open cardigan with gentle waist shaping, Cross Pockets also features a flattering V-neck and super useful big pockets.  The little crosses in the band-pattern are repeated with the shape of the pockets and all that texture is perfect for a yarn with superior stitch definition. Offering a professional shoulder-solution and beautifully fitting sleeve caps, this design is suitable for intermediate knitters and is available in sizes XS-S-M-L-XL-XXL.  Best of all, it’s knit from the top down all in one piece, which means no seaming (except a few stitches to attach the pockets).  The sample garment shown was knit using a cotton/merino blend like our Joie De Vivre DK, but would be equally lovely (and warm) in our elann Milly Milly DK 100% Mercerized Wool!
