Let the air wrap you in its arms when you’re wearing: CERISARA.
A beautiful hybrid of a very traditional shape with lovely lace, Cerisara has intriguing form and exquisite finishing.
Knit in one piece, from the top down. Instructions included for both long sleeves and a sleeveless vest version -- sleeves easily shortened with this try-it-on-as-you-go design!
This is a style that uses DK weight yarn bumped up to a worsted weight gauge to make a fabric with gorgeous, but not out-of-control, drape and stitch definition.
I used something called Eucool for the sample sweater, which is a very lightweight yarn made from wool and get this: eucalyptus! I fantasized about the days I used to live on the coast of Northern California where we had so many of these trees (I am very sentimental)!
Other beautiful yarns that work well: Silky Wool, Felted Tweed DK, Rowan Cashcotton, Lempur Linen, & Wool/Cotton, Classic Elite Soft Linen, Hempathy, etc. Oh, and Blue Sky SKINNY COTTON (oh please, the Mallard color just rocks)!
I’ll be updating thel master list as I find ‘em so please send any suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org …
The model’s bust measurement in the pic is 36” and the sweater shown is size 38” (so pick your actual measurement + 2” for a standard fit).
