Bennington

Find Bennington at Harrisville Designs.

Fall is hands-down my favorite season, and the Bennington Cardigan is just the kind of cardigan I always reach for during those first chilly fall days. It’s cozy, enveloping, and lusciously complex-looking (while being easy to knit!). Even putting it on just to get the morning paper reminds me of all the hiking, pumpkin- and apple-picking, hot-cider-donut-and-hay-riding days to come.
