Itatiaia Cocoon

$ 12.00

Inspired by the migration of birds each fall to escape the cold, the Itatiaia Cocoon is a cozy and oversized bolero-shaped garment. The pattern is worked in an attractive combination of ribbing, cables, and stockinette stitch, with details at the back and sleeves. Because of its simple construction, this garment is highly customizable in both width and length.
