Cosy never looked so good – and throwing knitwear on its side never felt so fun!
Did you know living like an Outlaw is an oversized cardy where simple knitting and thoughtful construction meet?
Prepare to be surprised. Your best Outlaw life is just waiting for you to cast on.
Like a typical rebel, Outlaw plays with two yarn weights in the same knit. Her body is worked sideways in scrummy DK before adding sleeves and a snuggly folded collar in lighter fingering/ sport-weight yarn.
She’s super flexible, and if you want to make changes, you’ll find that with just a little planning, you’ll be able to shape your Outlaw into something that works perfectly for you.
Full of clear instructions and stitches that are quick to master, Outlaw is an ideal knit for new garment knitters and experienced knitters wanting to indulge in unusually edgy and rebellious knitting.
