Olearia is a sweet little pattern just perfect for the changing weather. It features three interlinked designs or three petals; two variations of a cardigan and a shrug. All are seamless, knit top down and are deceptively simple to knit.

Olearia is a native Australian daisy bush.

Shrug: features all over gathering with short sleeves.

Cardigan Version 1: features all over gathering with gathered elbow length sleeves.

Cardigan Version 2 features a gathered bodice, a stocking stitch body and long sleeves with two different cuff options; gathered or garter.

The option of cap sleeves is also included. This is suitable for all garments.
