Under POCKETS on page 7 there is a blank Row 2 (ws) This is meant to be worked as an ordinary wrong side row: BB, sM, p to BBM, sM, BB, slipping all markers as you pass them.

Fell in love with these floating eyelet lines and some cute details like the eyelet buttonband (allows you to decide for buttons with finishing or even wear it unbuttoned or “wrong” buttoned, my favorite :)).
And of course the almost hidden fair isle part inside the pockets.

The cardigan is worked seamlessly top-down in one piece in Stst, without picking up stitches again.

The pattern comes with the option for the long and the short version.

(There is a hooded version of Naima (accidentally happened, when I wanted to knit a short version sample). If you want to knit this version find the mods here). (please keep in mind, that this version is not tested and I just do my best to make the mods work as an addition to the pattern)


pattern details:

a loose fit is built into your size.

A Sport to DK weight yarn is recommended.
Tip: For the long version choose a yarn in nearly the same yardage knitting up with bigger needles to result in a lightweight cardigan that will not stretch into coat dimensions.
Long version:
1200/1310 (1300/1420, 1450/1590, 1600/1750, 1760/1930,1910/2090) Number of Skeins of Rieger Schafwolle 5 (5, 6, 7, 7, 8) A little amount of two contrast colors for the fair isle pattern inside the pockets.
