Gandala is a modern cardigan for everyday use. The design is relaxed and you can wrap in to your long and loose cardi when the chill hits. Stitch pattern is trendy half brioche that is nice and easy to work, and the wide raglan seams give a great detail on shoulders. There’re also pockets on front side.
You can wear Gandala with a basic t-shirt, a silky blouse or thin sweater. You can easily customize the length just for your needs and also skip the pockets - they are made afterwards.
The cardigan is worked from the top down seamlessly. First you cast on for the neck band. Then you pick up the stitches from the band and begin to work the yoke with raglan seams. Then divide the sleeves and the body and continue with the body. After the sleeves there are only pockets left.
Choose a color you want to live with years. Gandala goes never out of style.
