Franca knitted with  / front view // cocoknits.com
  • Franca is a comfy-casual cardigan with a perfectly slouchy shape. Everything is knitted as you go, including the front band and the free-hanging, kangaroo-style pockets, which means after binding off, you just have a couple gaps to close before blocking and curling up in it.
