The Sunniva pattern is now available! Finally!

Sunniva was designed to fill a wardrobe gap and close a gap. I love button down blouses and cardigans as wardrobe staples, but the unfortunate gaping that occurs at times can make them problematic. I wanted to make a sweater that would be modeled on a tee shirt – easy to pull on and wear – but with the stylistic look of a button down blouse; something that would be equally appropriate for casual wear or in more formal situations. The idea of a side shaped tee with a false button placket stuck in my mind and wouldn’t leave. Sunniva offers a wide range of options to the knitter with two sleeve choices and an optional lace collar. Although it is simple to knit, the false placket keeps it from becoming boring. I hope you enjoy your sweater as much as I’ve been enjoying mine!
