A large collar and flared sleeves bring a funky edge to this soft knit. It’s worked in the flat, and has a dropped shoulder-line combined to a shaped sleeve. This makes it comfortable to wear, and gives it a unique look. The cardigan combines ribbed hem and collar to lacey sleeves and bodice. It’s an easy project suitable for beginners and those who like to knit while watching TV.

I used discontinued Nalle Colori for this cardigan. Nalle is a sport weight yarn, and comes in many colorways. Any similar yarn will do nicely for this cardigan, and using cotton with similar weight will turn this warm knit into a summer favourite. For size S, I used approx 400 grams of yarn. That comes to about 1040 meters.

Edit June, 14th, 2014: Just noted that Novita has, if not re-published the red Nalle Colori I used in the original pattern, re-introduced it as Novita Taika. Look for the red skein, Finnish knitters!
