Sweet Laurel

 

Sweet Laurel is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits


(available from Purlescence)

This simple, figure-skimming V-neck cardigan is the perfect layer of graceful warmth and comfort for Stadtbummeln on a late summer evening. The buttonband is a variant of the standard Ziggurat version.

The generous pockets are double knitted, with i-cord edging to give a classically finished touch. Sweet Laurel is knitted in a summery, subtly variegated shade of SweetGeorgia DK, a yarn which gives a soft handle and gentle drape.

(Oh, and the figure skimming works better on Greta than on me…)
