Cykeltur (’bike ride’) is roomy but not bulky, cosy yet stylish, and the perfect sweater for long walks in bright woods and across moody moors, or for the market shop, balancing bags on your bike.

Soft and lofty Håndværksgarn, a Danish-spun aran blend of Gotland and merino, makes this both a speedy and pleasing knit.

The split hem is hip-friendly, a split and tied collar can be rakish or cosy or both – the domed turned-up cuffs are just for fun but they will also keep your wrists snug and warm.

It’s the first Åsa Tricosa pattern available also in Danish.
(a German version is coming soon)

There is some (optional) shaping but the general fit is relaxed.

  • Everything (except the collar) is knitted in one go, top to bottom
  • No seaming
  • Sleeves are knitted in the round from cap to cuff
  • Optional bust dart
  • Split collar tied with tie-cords
  • Photo & video tutorials
  • Helpful Table to keep track of increases from shoulder to underarm cast on
