Zelkova

Zelkova 2

With three quarter sleves and lace panels featuring a leaf motif framing the button bands Zelkova is a cardigan pattern that will take you from early spring, through cool summer evenings and into early fall.

I enjoyed the pattern so much I made two. The gray version above is made with Plymouth Yarns Worsted Merino Superwash and is a size 38".

Thank you to Karen, Jill & Lisa for test knitting and thank you Jaya for tech editing.

I loved working with The Fibre Company's Road to China yarn. This is some seriously soooooft yarn. Seriously. Soft. Now I might start sounding like a broken record on the Fibre Company's colors, but you cannot find a bad one in the bunch. I love this dusty, yet lively green. It mixes very well with most of my wardrobe, so my Zelkova gets worn a lot.
