Natsu Cardigan Kit - Shibui Reed (Linen)Shibui
We are really excited about the release of this new cardigan pattern from Ambah O'Brien. Carla did a test knit for herself and it is awesome! Light, airy, and very flattering, it is the perfect lightweight cover-up to wear over a summer dress or sleeveless top.
Natsu, a Japanese word meaning born in summer, appropriate for this light weight cardigan whose beginnings were in summer. Make this drapey open front cardigan in gorgeous linen for a versatile summer garment, perfect to wear over a frock or team Natsu with your favourite jeans. Designed to be oversized, you may choose to knit a smaller size for a more fitted garment. This raglan cardigan is worked top down, with the sleeves being separated near the waist. Once separated, minimal knitting is required to finish the body and sleeves. Stitches are picked up and worked for the eyelet collar.
Pattern includes a handy progress chart to check off as you knit.
