Watercourse is an exclusive new pattern for Becoming Art. Designed by the talented Carina Spencer, Watercourse uses the luxury yarn Agave Worsted to create this unique hooded cardigan.
Watercourse is worked from the bottom up in one piece, and features deep pockets and an opposing diagonal rib pattern with i-cord edge at all the boarders. A short gather and ribbed motif are placed at the center-back for a bit of interest. Short rows are used to shape the sleeve caps and hood. Options for short or long sleeves are included.
