October 2021 Autumn Leaves special offer: 21% off Safra cardigan and Safra shawl & scarf patterns, September28 - October 21, no coupon needed.

The inspiration for Safra comes from all the amazing textures created by nature in autumn. The beautiful yoke features soft cables shaped like fluttering leaves worked on a reverse stockinette background with just a few small bobbles reminiscent of autumn berries added along the bottom edge.

A sister pattern to the Safra shawl & scarf, the Safra cardigan is worked from the top down with a round yoke in one piece for minimal finishing (yoke is charted and has written instructions). To let the intricately textured yoke shine, the body and the sleeves are knit in simple stockinette with narrow seed stitch hems. Button bands are added along the front edges, and a neat I-cord trim is worked last at the neck.
