Tamzin is your perfect summer cardigan. It is worked from top down in one piece. The yoke is knit in stocking stitch and then combination stitch used for the main body. No finishing is required apart from weaving in the ends and sewing on the buttons. It is worked in dk weight silk which can be substituted with silk blends and possibly viscose and cotton. It is an easy and fun knit. The only techniques used are cast on/ bind off, yarn over and simple increases.
The pattern comes in sizes 30 through 48 with 2 inch increments in two pdf files.
