✨ Are you looking for a cardigan as light as the spring breeze it’s named for? Or maybe you want a sweater that puts the fabulous in any outfit no matter the season? Well, then the Zephyros Cardigan is for you!

This gorgeous raglan cardigan starts with a deep V designed to flatter every figure. Then you can pick your path! Will you choose the light and breezy short sleeve option or a gloriously puffed sleeve cardigan? (Or you can do like me and knit both of course!) The distorted 1/1 rib adds a lovely bit of texture and a ton of visual interest for very little effort.

Designed with a closer-to-the-body (but still roomy) 4”/10 cm of positive ease, you can move with the wind! Knit it cropped or work it to your ideal length and end with 4 beautiful buttons. Get ready to fall in love!
