Cierzo is a comfy and easy to knit garment that will keep your chest, neck and back warm on a windy day! Perfect for all family members. Is knitted in one piece and you can add extra length to both the back and front side to fit your requirements.

It is inspired in Matarraña in the Spanish area of Teruel. The olive trees, stone houses and of course the characteristic Cierzo wind was of great inspiration for this pattern. I hope you enjoy it!
