This oversized cardigan is as fresh and dramatic as the summer wind. Zephyr, designed by Shellie Anderson of Shibui, features a unique and ingenious construction—it’s worked flat from the bottom up with a sport/DK-weight blend of linen, silk, and wool (Shibui Twig). The sleeves are then worked flat with one strand of a sport-weight cotton (Shibui Fern). A subtle change in texture and stitch density that intrigues!
