Product details

Slightly set in shoulder straps show off your tanned (or sophisticatedly pale) summer shoulders. In winter Caesura morphs into an elegant evening top.

Designed for somewhat obsessive Zigguraters, Caesura is like any true Ziggurat knitted from cast on to cast off in one big sweep with an interesting hem detail. OK, the revised and updated pattern features one snip. One. It just made sense...

The hem is knitted on and attached sideways and makes a little bow around each side rib to create a small flare. Instructions for a simpler hem are included for knitters who don't want to fiddle.

And there is an accordion fold in the back neck just for fun, and also to allow for a higher neckline that isn't too tight.

  • detailed instructions
  • small explanatory drawing
  • photo tutorials
  • note to seasoned Zigguraters: the steps unfold a bit differently here because you begin, well… you’ll see!.
