Olinda is named after a beautiful town in the Dandenong Ranges in the southern part of Australia. It sits perched high up in the hills surrounded by lush vegetation. For coast dwelling folk like us, it is an amazing wonderland with so much greenery and even the possibility of snow!
The magic of this cardigan lies in the fact that it is reversible! While both sides aren’t the same, both are equally lovely.
This sweet little cardigan is knit top down and seamlessly. It is worked from a circular yoke which flows into a beautiful lace pattern. The lace is relatively intuitive and can be made even easier to follow with the help of a lifeline.
Olinda is more suited to an intermediate knitter who is comfortable reading their own work. The pattern contains both chart and full instructions for the lace work.
Options are given in the pattern for working either short or full length sleeves.
