Surry Hills is a very special place for me. It’s not only the first neighborhood I put my feet down on in Sydney. It is also the neighborhood where I got married. It represents so much for me that I had to use the name for this design.

This cropped cardigan is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up. It has a little shaping on the sides and a seamless set-in ¾ sleeve. The ribbing is a broken ribbing and the moss stitch element can also be found in the seam between the upper body and sleeves.

The pattern has both charted and written instructions but the knitter should be familiar with following charts.

This is an intermediate pattern with some intricate stitches and techniques but they are carefully explained or linked to other resources.

On page 3 under Decrease, Note shall say:

NOTE! When decreasing in lace pattern, omit all yo’s on last repeat of the right hand front, first and last repeat of the sleeves and back and on the first repeat of the left hand front unless they are directly followed by a k2tog or placed directly after an ssk. It’s very helpful to have a stitch marker between each repeat!*
