PAY WHAT YOU CAN This pattern uses a “Pay What You Can” pricing structure, which allows for both fair compensation for me, the designer, and financial accessibility for you, the customer.

Three price tiers are available:

PAY 100 SEK (approx $10) - Full price, NO CODE NEEDED

PAY 60 SEK (approx $6) - code: EMMYLIEN60

PAY 30 SEK (approx $3) - code: EMMYLIEN30

The maximum price (which is listed in the column on the right) is the “true” value of the pattern. I believe it best reflects the work that I have put into developing it. I have provided the two other price points in case the full price is not currently accessible to you - just add one of the codes listed at checkout. Which price point you use is completely up to you, no questions asked.

Hildur is a comfortable yet stylish everyday sweater. It features a wide body, boat-neck and carefully shaped, cropped sleeves. Best of all, thanks to the loose gauge it can be made in a range of fibres, so pick what suits you / the season / your body / your budget.

CONSTRUCTION
Hildur is worked flat in two identical panels and seamed together. Stitches are then picked up along the neckline and sleeve edges, which can be either knitted or crocheted to provide a neat finish (pattern includes instructions for both).

YARN ALTERNATIVES
This design is very versatile and can be made in almost any fibre ranging from lace to worsted weight. Each will of course result in a different look and drape, but what matters is that gauge is met. Play around with different fibres, either on their own or held together, and swatch with several hook sizes to see what you like best.
