Cuddle down in a gloriously warm oversized cardigan inspired by old men of the sea. Bellows knits up astonishingly fast in double strands of Shelter, with simple stitch patterns that keep the work meditative and anchor-shaped cables on the lower front and sleeves for visual impact. The garment is worked in pieces and seamed with set-in sleeves, and then the shawl collar and front ribbing are picked up and shaped with short rows.
If you prefer a sleeker fit, choose a size that gives you about four inches of positive ease instead of the nine inches shown on our model. Bellows looks handsome in any color from the Shelter palette, so choose a foresty green, a soft purple, or your favorite earth tone. Or get creative, holding two closely related hues together for a marled effect.
