Easy Breezy Shores May 16, 2011

Breeze Shore - Creative Knitting July 2011

Just like the title said, an easy breezy cardigan that is perfect for the warm climate. This is my cardigan design that is currently published in the July 2011 issue of Creative Knitting.

This lightweight cardigan is worked in fine sock yarn with size 4 needles…. it is also mostly seamless.. I said mostly because there are 2 seams to join the shoulder together. The entire cardigan is work in one piece from bottom up till the arm shaping; then the back piece and 2 front pieces are worked separately. The 3rd quarter sleeves are worked from top down and sleeves caps are shaped using short-row after the shoulder seams are joined. The lace border is worked in such a way that is joined to the front side while knitting it. Hence, there is no sewing the border to the cardigan afterward. Of course, it’s up to personal preference to how to work the lace border.

I love minimal design; clean, classic and very practical; so this cardigan in a way is very me. As always, if you have question of the design, feel free to leave me a message.

Happy Knitting!
