Mazzy is a perfect layering cardigan, with a longer length, pockets, and around-the-neck front band panels that ensure it lies comfortably on your shoulders without falling off. Knit in one-piece from the bottom-up, it features mock-cable ribbing for the front panels (a super easy, fun stitch!) Pockets can easily be omitted if you prefer. Also, photo tutorials are provided on my website for several of the techniques. This sweater is a great combination of easy knitting plus interesting techniques that any skill level can be comfortable with.

Shown in size S, being worn with approx. 1”/2.5 cm of positive ease. Choose a size that is approx. ½-2”/1-5 cm larger than your actual chest measurement. If you are in between sizes, choose the smaller of the two. Because cardigan is open-style and not meant to close completely in the front, the above circumference is based on how the cardigan will be worn and doesn’t represent actual garment measurement. See schematic in pattern for a visual explanation.
