The Ladies Coolbreeze Cardigan Pattern is also available as part of the Coolbreeze Collection e-book which features baby versions of the Coolbreeze cardigan and sweater.
Sweater is worked from the top down with minimal finishing.
The Coolbreeze Cardigan was born out of a desire to use one of my DK weight Palettes in the yoke of a sweater – a simple idea, with high impact results! I love traditional fair isle colourwork, but really wanted to explore something a little different with this design. The colourful chevron rainbow pattern on the yoke and cuffs of this sweater is worked using slipped stitches, so though the result is a rich and complicated look, the execution couldn’t be simpler, you’re never working with more than one colour at a time. All the colour without the fuss, that’s my kinda knitting! This cardigan includes a coordinating slouchy hat pattern. I recommend knitting the hat first to get comfortable with the stitch pattern and to measure your gauge. A hat and a swatch all in one!
