Designed by Laura Nelkin

Cascadilla was designed as an ode to Abrazo, the first pattern Laura published in Knitty, and is a combination of Abrazo's cables and a sweater construction she has been playing with for the last few years. The Novus construction is a seamless side-to-side construction that uses panels to connect flat pieces that look in no way like a sweater into a well fitting garment! This might be one of those patterns you just need to knit to understand… and once you do there is a whole collection of sweaters for you to knit next!
