Pattern Description:

Summer knitting is for those transitional pieces that will take you from spring's end to early fall -- and through the office air conditioning in between. Brennan is the perfect little cardigan for the task. It is a circular yoke construction, knit from the bottom up, with sleeves worked in the round. Dart shaping on the front and back of the bodice give it a lovely feminine shape. Finishing is minimal, requiring only seaming or grafting under the arms, where the sleeves meet the body. The cardigan sample is shown in Shalimar Yarns Breathless DK in the "Last Dance" colorway. Brennan is suitable for intermediate knitters or the intrepid advanced beginner. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted.
