Lotte

$8.00 USD

Lotte is half poncho, half sweater, fully perfect for keeping the chill away. She’s oversized and boxy but the long slender cuffs keep the overall silhouette from becoming sloppy.

The huge cable running up the front is not twisted like a cable. It is achieved by knitting each half separately and moving the “cable” sts back and forth from side to side. Side seams and 3-needle BO for shoulders are worked to create an exposed seam on the RS.
