Designed by Marianne Isager. 

SUGAR was a gift to Marianne from her aunt, Ella. The original sweater was green and Ella wore it while she was gardening. She exchanged it for sugar ration stamps during World War 2, hence the name.

Marianne loved it, and in the 80s she made a knitting pattern for it which quickly became a classic because of its lovely yet simple cable pattern and beautiful collar. The pattern is mostly worked in garter stitch, but with little cables worked over the 2 stockinette stitches between the garter stitch stripes.

This popular and versatile cardigan pattern was designed for Spinni & Alpaca 2 yarns held together, but would also be delightful with Isager Tweed on its own.
