Did you know that animal prints are a neutral? Well, now you do! This sweater is a knitter’s take on the cheetah print, and because it’s worked in stranded knitting, it’s basically double for warmth. Cheetah is the fastest land animal - it can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds! This acceleration is higher than most sports cars! I am forever impressed by cats:)

The sweater is worked top down seamlessly in the round, with no finishing - you can try it on as you go and once you bind off, you are done! Matching cardigan lives here.
