Hitch is an edge to edge slouchy ribbed cabled cardigan with balloon sleeves.
It features a giant short row cable and balloon sleeve. The fit is over-sized and boxy with a loose tension to enhance the drape.
It’s designed with positive ease and worked from the bottom up on straight needles in separate pieces and then seamed.
The neck edging is ‘grown on’ from the front panels to wrap around and meet at the centre back neck. There are no closures in the design but giant covered snaps would work really well.
(Sample is made in size S)
