If you’ve seen our other free Patons Serenity knitting patterns on the site (see links to the left), this is a funkier version of the others. This one is slightly cropped in length with cute cap sleeves. As with the long sleeved cardigan this cardigan features a fabulous deep zigzag lace pattern round the edges.
This cropped and casual style is perfect for layering with t-shirts or blouses, and has a more relaxed feel.
Patons Serenity is a bamboo and cotton blend that feels really soft and slinky. Our version is knitted in Blossom, a pastel pink, but an entirely different look could be achieved with other Serenity colours. The cardigan would look brilliant in black and cheerful in cherry too.
If you like this style we also have free knitting patterns for a long waistcoat and a three quarter sleeve cardigan in a similar style.
