In need of a extra special piece in your wardrobe?

Glöd, Swedish for “embers” is just that fancy and attention craving creation that you’ve been looking for! The cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down, with a rounded neckline and a simple empire waist stockinette body. The bottom part worked in strips of garter stitch is an excellent opportunity to go wild in the yarn stash and compose your own favorite palette of colors. Easy knitting with a spectacular result!
