Sweet Laurel

Knitting
May 2018
DK (11 wpi) ?
20 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches
in stocking stitch
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 2½ - 3.0 mm
930 - 1422 yards (850 - 1300 m)
32 (34, 36, 38, 40) [42, 44, 46, 48, 50] inches

This one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits
(the individual patterns will be made available later, one or a few at a time)

This simple, figure-skimming V-neck cardigan is the perfect layer of graceful warmth and comfort for Stadtbummeln on a late summer evening. The buttonband is a variant of the standard Ziggurat version.

The generous pockets are double knitted, with i-cord edging to give a classically finished touch. Sweet Laurel is knitted in a summery, subtly variegated shade of SweetGeorgia DK, a yarn which gives a soft handle and gentle drape.

(Oh, and the figure skimming works better on Greta than on me…)
