The yarn and the pattern for the gorgeous Berlin Dickey/Dickie by Danish designer Helga Isager.
Kit includes: Printed copy of pattern plus 3 balls (150g) of Isager Alpaca 3 which is enough for both sizes.
You will also need 5mm (US 8) and 6mm (US 10) needles.
The "body" is knit flat and the neck in the round, although it's easy enough to knit it flat and them seam down one side, if required.
(Our version, pictured on Milli in colour 18, has a strand of Silk Mohair held together with the Alpaca 3 in the back, and the neck is knit flat so that the silk mohair can be held with the Alpaca 3 on the back stitches only.)
SIZES: S/M (M/L)
MEASUREMENTS: Shoulder width: 42 (46) cm Total length: 31 (33) cm Collar: 18 (18) cm
Isager Alpaca 3 is a light, airy, chunky weight yarn that's perfect for your quick, warm Winter knits.
Renowned for classic yarns made from natural fibres, well suited for knitting, crochet, weaving and embroidery.
All the wool qualities are ideal for felting and for dyeing with plant dyes.
It is important to us that our yarns are produced with the greatest amount of care taken to both animals and humans.
THE COLOUR RANGE
Carefully created so the colours work well together both within and across the qualities. We rarely change the colours, as the range primarily consists of BASIC COLOURS, amongst which contemporary colours can always be found.
The colours and qualities of our finer yarns can be mixed to create unique pieces.
As a rule, single ply, densely spun yarns should not be used individually for working in the round, as they may pull the finished work. When worked together with other qualities this problem is avoided.
