Chasma




Ships next business day

This pattern is free only with the purchase of 5 skeins of The Fibre Company Cirro.

By Becky Baker
Chasma is a boxy, oversized cardigan with blouson sleeves and a deep V-neck. Knitted up in a gauzy fisherman’s rib, it uses a modular, join-as-you-go, construction from the top down. Designed by Becky Baker in primarily Fibre Co. Cirro, she introduces an end of Fibre Co. Canopy Fingering into the ribbed trims for extra structure and softness. This is the perfect cardigan to snuggle up in as soon as the temperature drops.
