Knit Kit - Ocean Breeze Cardigan

SKU: B72064

What’s one garment in your closet that you consider a summer essential? For me, it’s this boxy & oversized cardigan I can throw on before I head to the beach. The early morning (and later evening) breeze from the ocean is refreshing but can also be a bit chilly. I wanted to design a piece that is no fuss, easy to knit and casual in style. This oversized cardigan easily layers over a tank top for that light layer of coziness when needed. Knit in Lion Brand Mandala Bonus Bundle, there’s no need to weave in additional ends — the colors change seamlessly!


Pattern Designer Information
My name is Vanessa Coscarelli Black and I’m a wife, mom, animal lover and knitwear designer residing in New Jersey. I come from a long line of various makers — tailors, shoemakers, chefs, painters, contractors. Most everyone in my family has some sort of skill that requires their hands (and I think that’s pretty great)! I started my career in finance and while I learned a ton during my time in the corporate environment, I knew that long term, it was not the right career path for me. With 20+ years of knitting/crochet experience under my belt, I slowly transitioned my hobby into my small business and never looked back.

Terrific kit!

I bought this kit to knit a sweater for Christmas 2025. It is such a pretty pattern and I love the self striping yarn, Mandala. I have two more sweaters to knit for this Christmas and then I'm off to knitting for the next year. Can't wait to get started.
