Wondrella is a fun and flirty batwing-sleeve cardigan, and the ideal vintage-inspired sweater to dress up an outfit!

The modified drop-shoulder body is seamlessly knit bottom up, and the dramatic 1950s-inspired batwing sleeves are knit down from the armhole.

The peek-a-boo slit neckline (easy to modify higher or lower!) is trimmed with an icord bow and topped off with either a simple plain neckband, or a small collar that can be popped up for a perfectly 50s stand up collar.

The clear, detailed instructions make this a pattern that’s suitable for adventurous beginners as well as seasoned knitters alike. Wondrella will be the fuzzy vintage sweater of your dreams!
