Iskald is a sister pattern to my Nordiska, I loved the fit and shape of that design so much that I wanted another, plain version with a slightly longer, fit and modified sleeve shape. If you have already purchased Nordiska, you will get Iskald with a 50% discount (just place it in your cart and the discount will be automatic).

Iskald is a simple, relaxed v-neck sweater featuring a deep raglan and slightly cocoon-type body shape. This simple sweater is designed to be an wardrobe staple that is both feminine and modern.

The sample is knit holding one strand of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Mighty Mo (mohair) and Foxy Lady (merino/silk blend) throughout for a drapy and fuzzy, romantic fabric. Kits in a wide range of colors are available through The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers!

Sizes:
