1 is least difficult, 5 is most difficult

A hexagonal bubble popover is cozy and easy to wear as well as boldly stylish. Knit in Shelter, this playful garment is worked from the center out, with spines of delicate cables delineating each segment and forming a criss-cross that makes Cusp surprisingly flattering. When the back and front are complete, the live stitches are united from the wrong side using the Joinery bind-off. The sleeve openings, collar, and hem are edged in double rib. The sample is shown in a tinted neutral — Postcard — but Cusp would be elegant at the ends of the spectrum in Cast Iron or Fossil, too.
