Hopp, meaning ”hope” in Swedish, is a beautiful and flattering cardigan for the adult ladies. A seamless and top down construction featuring decorative lace panels will be an intriguing knit and a definite eye catcher; time to show off!

The pattern comes with instructions for both buttoned and tied closures, and has been test knitted in all sizes.

Hopp is since January 2014 also available in Portuguese! Yay! Lots of thanks to the wonderful caroBuz for helping out with this!

(Psst! Buying the adult pattern automatically gives you a 50% discount on Hopp Mini!)
