Lilli



Just in time for your summer knitting - Lilli is here! Very simple shape with an intricate looking cable pattern to keep things interesting you'll have it finished in no time at all. The right side is reversed stocking stitch, you spotted right, but never fear! - that part is actually worked on the wrong side so you won't need purling in the round at all.




SKILL LEVEL
Intermediate – simple increases and decreases, cabling and simple finishing.
