In need of a cropped, light and flattering cardigan to spice up your wardrobe?
Luftslott, meaning ”reverie” in Swedish, is an elegant and seamless top-down knit with a tied closure. Beautiful garter stitch details and edgings, together with a low required yardage makes up a lovely knit – make more than one!
Luftslott is the first design in a small collection;
the “Tied together” trio.
The collection will include three body flattering cardigans featuring tied closures, in adult sizes XS to 4X - the other two designs will be released in September and October. (Buying the collection will save you 4 USD compared to buying the patterns alone!)
