This incredibly pink and colorful cardigan was designed with youtuber Kristyglassknits in mind after she visited in Iceland. Knitted with one strand of plötulopi together with 1 strand of my very fine Icelandic lace Love Story on big needles, it´s super light, soft and squishy, and super quick to knit!

The official KAL for the cardigan will start January 29th 2021 (and not 15th as first announced) with a series of weekly step by step videos on my youtube channel ! The KAL will be hosted on my Facebook group: join in to participate! WATCH THE KAL TEASER VIDEO
