Trunk Show Spotlight: Koukla Cardigan

Koukla (Greek for “doll”) is a flattering cardigan with an empire waist and pockets.  Our manager knit one last year and lived in it all winter long!

The bodice is knit in pieces with set-in sleeves, and the skirt portion is picked up from the bottom of the bodice and worked down to the hem. The sleeves are worked along with the skirt in a unique way that requires no finishing. It’s lightweight yet warm just where you need it.
