Olivenhain Cardigan

$8 (PDF DOWNLOAD) 

Yet again, my neighborhood inspires me! Olivenhain (means “Olive Grove” in German) is a name of community in the city of Encinitas, CA, originally settled by German colonists in the late 19th century. 
Knitted from the top down, this v-neck cardigan features the pattern which reminded me of olive branches, waist shaping and imitation of the set-in sleeves.
