Catbells Sweater by Megan Nodecker
A pullover sweater with all-over texture.
Catbells is an oversized, cropped length pullover. It’s quite boxy up top, with 6” of positive ease at the bust, and pulls in slightly at the waist for some definition. The sleeves are also knit with positive ease and end with a slightly bloused cuff. With a wide crew neckline, this effortless sweater is as comfy as your favourite worn in sweatshirt, and it will quickly become a favourite throw-on-and-go staple. The squishy eyelet-garter texture provides movement and breathability and tubular bind offs add the finishing touches.
Catbells is knit seamlessly from the top down. The body is worked back and forth for the upper front and upper back, then in the round for the remainder of the body. The sleeves are picked up from around the armholes and knit in the round to the wrist, and the sweater is finished off by picking up and knitting the neckband.
