Simple Summer Ziggurat

Simple Summer Ziggurat is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits


(available from Purlescence)

This is a fingering/4ply version of the original Simple Ziggurat.

This is the original Simple Ziggurat Sweater, here knitted in Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Pure, a fingering weight yarn. It is the most basic Ziggurat imaginable. Knit it exactly as written, or use the design and instructions as a canvas for adding your own details. Choose a pocket or a different hem from the Tutorial section (in the book), or add your own embellishments.

The yellow-green/white pullover has a simple rolled neckline, hem, and cuffs. The brown/black Simple Ziggurat features a contrasting lined hem and cuffs. Instructions for both versions are included.
