DESCRIPTIONWATER BEARER is a sweater inspired by and designed for the creative, justice-minded, free spirit of the Aquarian zodiac. With seamless top-down construction and a dramatic brioche shawl collar, this cardigan provides for an elegant and absorbing knit. The pattern includes 12 sizes, two length options, written and charted instructions for the brioche waves, and 5 video tutorials that cover everything from choosing the correct size to picking up stitches and working the i-cord bind off along the edges of the collar.
