Tove is an oversized cardigan with drop shoulders and a loose fit that is worked holding 3 strands of Mohair yarn together.
It is inspired by the shapes and fit of 80s fashion, and the fisherman’s rib stitch adds a trendier touch to the design. Tove is worked bottom up with sleeves that are picked up from the body and then finished with a long and tight ribbed cuff to create a balloon sleeve effect. Shoulders are joined by working up the live stitches into a stockinette stitch saddle seam. This shoulder construction adds a steadier and more structured feel to the sweater.
