NORRLAND is a swingy cardigan with lots of twisty, lacy cables. A little waist shaping worked at the sides of the body combine with the oversized fronts to create a great flattering (yet comfy!) silhouette. Long set-in sleeves and a squishy garter stitch cowl neck are perfect for cozying up anywhere. This worsted weight yarn from Zen Yarn Garden has fantastic stitch definition and rich tonal colours, perfect for all those cables.

The one button closure at the neck is a great place to showcase a special button like this one from a Toronto artist.

Cardigan is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. Collar is picked up and worked after seaming. For the best size, measure a sweater you like the fit of, and make the size closest to it. Shown in size 41.5” / 105cm with zero ease.
