***
“Yamaneko”, in Japanese, means a wild cat.
This is a grungy and oversized pullover.

Designing it, Megumi imagined a female wild cat, named M.
The mountain at night is her garden.
She walks in the dark forest, listening to the sounds of the wind, suddenly she finds a beautiful brook and she looks up at the night sky.
Please enjoy her adventure while knitting this pullover!

***
This pattern is knitted top-down in the round with some mosaic knitting, stockinette stitch, slip stitch, and a little bit of rib stitch.
