1. Bindweed by Life is Cozy

Designed by Life is Cozy, Bindweed is knit from the top down as a seamless raglan. The front sections and the back are worked in stockinette, and the balloon sleeves are richly decorated with a pattern of intertwined cables and nupps. You'll hold one strand fingering weight and one strand of mohair together through the pattern, to create a gorgeous gentle halo.

Bindweed stems, observed during a walk in a Californian spring field, inspired the design of this cropped, open-front cardigan. The muted color and gentle halo give the sweater a soft and natural look."
