Designer Angela Hahn

Finished Size 37 1/4 (41 1/2, 45 3/4, 50, 54)" bust circumference. Cardigan shown measures 37 1/4", modeled with 2 3/4" of positive ease.

Yarn Universal Yarn Nettle Lana (70% organic wool, 30% nettle; 98 yd [90 m]/1 3/4 oz [50 g]): #109 linen, 11 (12, 14, 15, 17) balls.

Needles Sizes 5 (3.75 mm) and 7 (4.5 mm): 24–47" circular (cir), depending on size you are making, and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle; two 5/8" buttons.

Gauge 19 sts and 27 rows = 4" in body patt on larger needle.

A wide and wavy lace in a papery nettle blend creates the Zephirine Cardigan. Gently rolling edges, an A-line shape, and front edges that fall away create an easy grace that emphasizes the beauty of the yoke.

The graph makes sense to me, the written instructions for the body do not. There doesn't seem to be any errata for this pattern. I have not worked with a pattern that has numbers in () without any instructions about repeats. It looks like there is a section of ribbing between each K13, p1 section, but I don't see that on the photo. Does k1, p1 (6,11,2,7) mean I repeat the k1, p1 by the number in the () that matches the size I wish to make? 

Can I find more information about this pattern from the designer, possibly on her web site?

This pattern would be much simpler if not done with a graph.I have done many fishermen knits and they don't use a graph. I just copy every line on a separate page which makes it very easy to follow.

I finally gave up on trying to follow the complicated graph for the zephirine cardigan and did what i usually do. write out on separate pages each line eg. line seven k1,yo,k3,yo,sssk,, ( k1,k3tog,yo,k3,yo,k1,yo,k3,yo,ssk) rep between brackets . No more no stitch to complicate the pattern when you have 225 stitches on the needle.

The pattern is in the Interweave Knits Spring 2014 magazine which you can purchase as a hardcopy or e-book in the shop/magazines at this site.
