Mabel by Cocoknits | Over the years we have had many requests for an Emma design (from the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book) with a rounded neckline. But it took the Mabel character in Only Murders In The Building to finally inspire me to get one knit up! Whether you’re solving murders or want a quick and simple project to knit while watching someone else solve them, Mabel is a loose-fitting, comfortable pullover that fits the bill. She is also infinitely adaptable … try knitting the neck ribbing into a cowl or extra long fold-over turtleneck. Add cables, split the hem, knit it knee length, add stripes … the sky’s the limit. It is written in 10 sizes from 36 to 72” bust, so you have options for fit, as well!
