Signe from PlumMum have designed this trendy wrap-cardigan, which we are very excited to knit for our summer wardrobe.
About the Cardigan Signe explains:"Who couldn't use a light and chic wrap cardigan for those cool summer evenings? A cardigan that is perfect for skirts, gauzy dresses or your high-waisted jeans? A cardigan that highlights the waist and your feminine features? Those were my thoughts when I designed the Wrap me up cardigan, which complements most of my existing wardrobe."
The wrap me up cardigan is a fluffy wrap cardigan in pure silk mohair. We made a yarn kit for it in our own Önling No 10, or Brushed Lace from Mohair by Canard, which gives a light but fluffy expression and at the same time you will have a finished result in no-time. Se the yarn kit in related products below.
The wrap me up cardigan is knitted top down with raglan increases and with a fine rib edge in the neck and on the cardigan's sides, which is knitted at the same time as the rest of the work. The cardigan is therefore almost without sewing together and you can try it on along the way during the knitting process, so you can continuously tailor it to your own measurements.
The cardigan has an edge piece at the bottom, which you can knit in 2 ways; with or without double increases to achieve either large or small volume. The edge is finished with an i-cord edge for an extra fine finish. The cardigan's sleeves, which are slightly puffed and stop just below the elbow joint, are also finished with an i-cord edge.
