Itatiaia Cocoon

Hi there!

Today's featured pattern is the Itatiaia Cocoon. This super cozy cocoon-style sweater is part of the Miss Babs 2020 Fall Collection, along with 11 other beautiful pieces from various designers, including my Nogueira Sweater that I will be talking about on the next post.

Inspired by the migration of birds each fall to escape the cold, 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.
