Snow in May

_0027331

 

 

 

 

 

 
When we woke up on 1st May this year, the ground was covered with snow, creating an interesting contrast between winter and spring, new growth and snow.

As well as this day, Snow in May is all about creating contrast. Whereas the cardigan itself is worked in single thread sportweight yarn and is lightweight and airy, the ribbed edges are worked with yarn held double to add a robust look.
This wrap cardigan is worked seamlessly from top down and features a wide neck, ¾ sleeves and a lace patterned hem.
