Irisa is a simple raglan-sleeved, open-front cardigan worked in a textured stripe pattern. Knitted from the top down, the fit and length of Irisa are easy to customize. The textured stripe is worked in a gradient of colors, perfect for using up leftover balls of worsted weight wool or wool blend yarn from other projects.
Pattern includes a large range of sizes, stripe pattern variations, and a formula for estimating the yardage remaining in a ball of yarn (which requires a food or postage scale). Cardigan meant to be worn with 2-4” positive ease in the bust. Shown with 3.5” positive ease.
