Cereus Sweater - Knitting Pattern PDF

  • $11.00


This seamless yoke sweater is knit from the top down with a simple, ribbed texture. The design features seamless construction, gender-neutral shaping, a rounded neckline and long sleeves.

If finished neatly, this sweater is reversible and can be worn with either the right or wrong side on the outside.

Due to the prominent ribbing in the sweater, the pattern gets its name from the plant genus Cereus which includes about 30 species of large, columnar cacti (such as the Night Blooming Cereus).
