Syli is a hug from your best friend. The cardigan is loose to comfort you and so wide, almost like a coat, that you can even wear a sweater underneath.
I made two samples with different types of yarns and details. The brown Syli is shorter and has pockets on the front. You can add pressed buttons if you want to get wrapped in or change up the style.
The lavender Syli is made of two yarns held together to give it a sophisticated look and ultimate softness. It comes with a belt, but you can skip it if you don’t have enough yarn.
Add the details of your choice to make your kind of cardi with the same basic recipe.
Syli is made top down seamlessly and published earlier in my Urban Knit book (link in my bio, in Finnish and in English).
