bridie / Bristol Ivy

more info

Loose, swingy Bridie is a cocoon that’s meant to be thrown on and lived in. Its simple construction of two identical pieces worked flat and joined at center back, then closing the cast-on edges to form the sleeves makes it a refreshingly simple knit. Geometric stitch patterns provide a pleasing contrast to the soft hand of the fabric that our linen Kestrel creates.
