Passing Showers is an open-style short sleeved cardigan using dk-weight or light worsted-weight yarn. It is knit in one piece from the top-down and featuring A-line body shaping. An eyelet stitch pattern is featured on the back as well as along the bottom hem and stitches are picked up to create the front bands. An easy layering piece perfect for warmer weather!

Pattern Information:

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X, 4X)

Shown in size S, being worn with approx. 2”/5 cm of positive ease.

Chest Circumference:
33 (35.5, 38, 40.5, 43, 46, 48.5, 51.5)” / 84 (90, 97, 103, 109, 117, 123, 131) cm

Choose a size that is approx. 1-2”/2-5 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.
