5 for 4 – if you buy any 5 Åsa Tricosa patterns at the same time you get the least expensive one for free.

This is the versatile and elegant 4ply or fingering weight version of Mayhem cardigan with the same overlapping fronts, and a squarish, slightly swingy shape that is so easy to wear.

Mayhem can look formal or entirely casual with its set-in, tailored sleeves and straightforward style.

The easy four-row stitch pattern makes for compulsive knitting.
The yarn, Linum – a blend of alpaca, silk, and linen – from The Uncommon Thread, provides drape and structure in equal measure and has enough woolliness to take the edge off that cool summer night or chilly autumnal morning.

Mayhem cardigan is also available in gauges for DK and Lace weight
