The Eucryphia is a small tree that produces scented flowers in the late Summer and is an important source of nectar collecting for bees. Eucryphia is native to South America, coastal and eastern Australia, and Tasmania.
Eucryphia means ‘well hidden’.

This is a pattern for a top down knit cardigan with a circular yoke. The cardigan is worked in the round with a bit of short row shaping at the neck, a steek, and using the stranded colourwork technique. You may knit Eucryphia in a 6 colour (my sample seen in images) or 4 colour (see my Eucryphia jumper sample) palette.

Please see schematic for all approximate finished sizes to chose the fit you prefer.

The pattern does not include waist shaping, but does have a small note about how to work this by changing needles or increasing sts for hips.
