Comanche Hill Cardigan
The Comanche Hill Cardigan by Kathryn Folkert is featured in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased with the magazine.
Inspired by the gorgeous baskets woven by the Washoe people of Nevada and California, the Comanche Hill Cardigan is made to go with jeans and a T-shirt, making it the perfect comfortable statement piece for every day. The body is worked in the round and steeked open to accommodate the colorwork for a no-fuss cardigan with a big payoff.
