Zingiber is a cozy top-down cardigan with raglan sleeves, striking cable details, cabled patch pockets, and a hood. This design was named after the Zingiber genus, the Latin name for a family of many warming plants like ginger, turmeric, and cardamom.
Zingiber features a wide four-leaf cable panel running down the back on a reverse stockinette background. The body is straight, making this unisex hoodie fit all body shapes. The hood — which can optionally be left out — is worked last and shaped with short rows.
The pattern comes in eight sizes and is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for all cable patterns.
Gauge: 17.5 sts × 28 rows = 10 cm / 4" in reverse stockinette on larger needles, blocked
