The delicate cabled raglan shaping emphasises the beautifully fitted shape. According to Halla, this cardigan is perfect for those of us who are constantly taking something off only to put it back on again. It is light and compact and therefore easy to pack; it is the kind of a trusted garment one always keeps at hand.
This pattern is designed for einrúm E+2 yarn or E+4 yarn in four sizes. The body is worked flat and the button band is worked simultaneously on smaller needles. The sleeves are worked in the round with a cabled raglan shaping. The sweater is worked in stocking stitch. The hem, cuffs and neckband are worked in moss stitch.
The gorgeous pattern booklet includes instructions in English, Icelandic and Danish. We love the built in needle gauge!
