Huia 
by Truly Myrtle

Designer’s Description: 

Every now and then you’re lucky enough to find a cardigan that you reach for every single day. Huia is that cardigan. She’s a magical combination of style and comfort and she looks fabulous however you want to wear her; dressed up for work or dressed down for a bbq with friends. Knitted in airy heavy-lace-weight yarn, Huia is full of gorgeous little details and is the perfect light-yet-warm layer.
You’ll start at the top and create the back yoke before picking up the fronts and working them to the armhole where you’ll join the fronts and back. The back neck is a fun V-shape and the front bands include a pretty lace detail that is worked with the body, so once you’re at the hem you’re done! No bands to pick up later. Set-in, three-quarter length sleeves give a flattering fit, and buttoned cuffs add a lovely twist.
Suitable for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners, Huia includes written and charted instructions and is a dream to knit and wear.
