Kiama is a comfortable cardigan with a surprise. Seen here in an airy ribbed stitch, this flexible garment can be flipped for a second look with a generous collar and cropped back view. Kiama is a shortened version of Kirra Knit.




Directions are for women’s size X-Small/Small.  Changes for sizes Medium/Large and 1X/2X are in parentheses.

Finished measurements

Bust – 40(44-48)”

Length – 21(22½-24)”

Note:  Since this shrug is not designed to meet in the front, the bust measurement is very forgiving and each size given will fit a multiple of sizes.
