Summer Eclipse Cardigan

Summer Eclipse Cardigan

This Summer Eclipse Cardigan is the perfect knit cardigan to get you through muggy summer nights and protect you from hoards of bugs trying to bother you during your evening bonfires or barbecues. The varying black and white striping on the cardigan gives it a rough, unfinished look that looks stunning with just about any complexion or hair color. The best part is that the yarn is self-striping, so you don't have to worry about doing any colorwork. You'll fall in love with this cardigan as soon as you knit the first row.

I have several cardigans like this one in my closet, all store bought. I am happy to find this pattern. Now I can make my own, using the colours and combinations I want. This one is definitely on my to-do list. I like that it is made with DK. Not too heavy, but still warm for cooler summer nights by the fire.
