Gretel




This pattern is available from Ravelry

By Pam Allen

Understated textural details combine to create a gorgeous eye-catcher in Gretel, by Pam Allen. Knitted in one piece from the bottom up, with sleeves picked up around the armhole and worked down, this cardigan’s Guernsey-inspired knit-purl motifs grace the front bands, lower body, and cuffs for a visual and tactile delight, beautifully showcased in worsted-weight Lark.
