Zephyr is a versatile girls' cardigan that can be summery, wintry or in between: A light cotton cardigan to throw on when the sun goes down, or knit it in wool with a closer neckline for a classy cool weather garment. A fun and interesting knit with simple lace mesh, garter feature sides, classic A-line shaping and three sleeve lengths to choose from. Zephyt is a top-down seamless knit starting with a circular yoke. Increases are made with a simple kfb and there are stitch count charts to help you keep track. The neckline can be wide and low for hot weather or brought in closer for cold weather with the short row instructions. Choose 8ply/DK cotton or other similar summer yarns for a soft drapey layering piece or 8ply/DK wool for a warmer, denser fabric.

I’m a wife, mum to two young girls (and two guinea pigs), a volunteer treasurer and serve the public four days a week. Knitting and designing is my favourite thing to do in my downtime - when I get some! I like to focus on practical garments and seamless construction. I love exploring interesting knitting techniques, construction and colour plays. And I have very little self-control in yarn shops.
