Description: Ouzo is an easy summer cardigan to throw on when there’s a little chill in the air. It features short sleeves, a loose fit, and a long flattering length. Knit in 3 pieces from the bottom up and seamed along sides and shoulders, this is a quick knit with a lot of stockinette and only a bit of easy-to-follow lace. Sleeves are created by casting on stitches at either side of the body. They are then shaped with short rows along the upper shoulder, adding to the slouchy feel of the piece.

Description: Dohne is worked flat from the right tip to the left edge with a built-in I-cord edge. Although it looks like cables, there is not one cable involved in the textured stitch pattern. There are 2 versions of this shawl: texture & garter and texture only. The texture is quite addictive and you won’t be the only one feeling a little sad when binding off. The pattern is fully written and charted row by row until the first repeat of adding garter stitches to the shawl is done.
