Ramona Light

Ramona Light is the light-weight version of my original Ramona Cardigan, knit up in sport-weight yarn and perfect for warmer weather or when you want just a little light layer.
Just like the original, this slightly cropped, seamless cardigan is knit from the top-down and is an easy and relaxing knit. It features a fake ‘seam’ along the sides, which gives the appearance of a seam as well as provides a little more structure than a typical seamless sweater.
There is a little waist shaping (similar to the original), with tips on how to lengthen the body or omit the shaping altogether if you prefer. A versatile cardi in just the right weight for any season!

I used Quince & Co’s Chickadee yarn, a perfect sport-weight yarn with great stitch definition. I also knit up a version in Quince & Co’s Tern yarn (the purple version shown in the photographs), another great yarn choice.
