Lina is an oversize, v-necked cardigan, worked from top down, in one piece. It has a slipped stitch pattern that creates the illusion of the fabric being weaved.

It comes in sizes XS-5XL

Its knitted with DK yarn, and I have knitted three versions myself:

  1. 100% Corriedale - 250 m per 100g
  2. Falkland fingering + mohair lace (held together)
  3. Mohair lace x 2 (held double)

The number of meters needed per size. Please remember that if you go for option 2 or three you need the double amount of meters.
XS: 900 m
S: 1020 m
M: 1200 m
L: 1200 m
XL: 1400 m
2XL: 1600 m
3XL: 1700 m
4XL: 1900 m
5XL: 2000 m

Pattern in English or Swedish.
Test knitted in sizes XS-3XL. (size 4XL and 5XL is NOT testknitted, contact me if you want to test knit those sizes in your own pace)
