Mayhem Cardigan debuted as a printed pattern at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: This pattern will appear also in my forthcoming Ziggurat Book (print & eBook, 2017).
Therefore, you may wish to WAIT for the book
Consider yourself warned. Or encouraged. Or both.
(Hinweis auf Deutsch 1)

Mayhem Cardigan has squishy texture, overlapping fronts, no buttons, and a squarish, almost swingy shape that is easy to wear.
This cardigan can look formal or entirely casual with its set-in, tailored, long sleeves.

A well-nigh invisible gather at centre back lends that little bit of extra ease.

The texture is created with an easy four-row stitch pattern that makes you want to knit just one more row. There is also a hidden (optional) mini pocket. Yay!

Like all Ziggurats, Mayhem is knitted top down with contiguous sleeve caps, built-in edges, and a built-in not-quite double-knitted coin pocket.
