This is one of those irresistible cardigans, large and warm. You can wrap it around you almost like a blanket, when you need something to snuggle into. The pocket has a different colour and is knitting in a lighter yarn than the body and the sleeves. There is almost no finishing work left after the knitting has been done which means you can start wearing it immediately!
This pattern is designed for einrúm L+2 yarn or L+4 yarn in two sizes (S/M and M/L). The cardigan is worked flat in stocking stitch. Borders are worked simultaneously using smaller needles. The pockets are integrated into the garment and are worked in E-yarn.
