Do you belong to those who can’t wait for Spring to arrive, but are reluctant to admit you’re feeling cold without a sweater? If you are like me, then “Xanti” is just the right thing to wear when you want to shed the bundled-up winter look, but still intend to stay warm when you need it.
Worked top-down in one piece from fingering weight yarn with just the right amount of positive ease, “Xanti” can be worn over a tank top, t-shirt or lightweight blouse. The decorative cable detail in the front has a visually slimming effect in all sizes and is uncomplicated to knit from six small charts for the individual cable sections. Set-in sleeves are started from a short-row sleeve cap and worked top-down in the round with the same fake purl seam and contrasting color edging as the body.
Paired with a skirt, jeans or even shorts – this casually elegant sweater knits up quickly and has all the features to become a staple of your spring wardrobe!
