Trolltyg, Swedish for “mischief”, is a one of a kind garment for the little one - a super fast knit that is easily customizable for an endless amount of cute variations! Keep it short as a shrug, or make it longer for a warmer cardigan length. Work stripes, tied closures, pockets, use scrap yarn… what are you waiting for?

Trolltyg Mini is worked from the top down in worsted or aran weight yarn. Two pieces are worked separately, to be joined with either buttons or ties. Add a cute crochet flower at the hem if desired!

The pattern is also available using DK weight yarn.
