This pattern can be found in issue 9 of Laine Magazine.

Summer Longing is knitted top down with raglan shoulder shaping in a knit/purl chevron pattern and garter stitch sleeves. The low sleeves and open front create a casual oversized cardigan that just hangs off your shoulders, perfect to throw on over your favourite outfit to ward off the chill. The yarn‘s silk and linen base creates a fabric that is both crisp and silky smooth and adds an almost tweedy depth and dimension to the gorgeous colours.
