PATTERN
The four unique zara cardigans were knit with the same basic pattern. All have set-in sleeves, bell or straight. The pattern has four choices of closures, four necklines with three different crochet styles and one knit mandarin collar. There are two pocket styles—a traditional style and a trendy pocket that hangs below the jacket edge and is sequined. The four cardigans were all knit with the same yarn, in the same color (it was a contest). Imagine what you could create with a different color and trim for each. There are clear instructions for each technique used, a schematic for each piece and a helpful tracking sheet. The easy to follow pattern includes:
• Schematic for each piece
• A helpful tracking sheet
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A link for substitute yarn
• A pattern helpline
