SKY CARDIGAN is knit from the top down with raglan sleeves, v-neck and a loose fit on the body. The cardigan is almost finishing free (just weave in the ends). It is possible to knit the design without the loose fit, so that the hip and bust measurements are the same. The length reaches the hip, but if you want to lengthen the model this is easy to do, you’ll get approximately 6-7 cm extra length per skein (depending on the size you are working)
Finished measurements Sizes XS-S (M) L-XL
Bust: Approx. 110 (118) 129 cm. Hip: Approx. 124 (133) 144 cm.
Length of body: Approx. 43 (43) 45 cm. Sleeve length under the arm: Approx. 38-40 cm.
Suggested yarn and yardage: Stjernestøv (with glitter) or Snefnug (without glitter) from CaMaRose, 110 m / 50 g. 8 (9) 11 skeins.
The sample in the picture is knit in Stjernestøv colour Soft Rosa 8008 (with silver glitter) which is a lovely soft rose colour with a subtle silver glitter. Another beautiful combination can be achieved by knitting the yoke in one colour and the body in another, for example Ash Grey Snefnug 7310 combined with Dark Rosa 7338 or Marine blue 7329. If you like even more colours choose as many as you like and divide them evenly throughout the work.
