Yarn kit for Charlie, a classic, striped cardigan knitted in our soft Önling No 2, made of 100% merino wool and sustainably produced in Italy. The yarn has been carded using a special technique that makes the yarn airy, wonderful, soft, and completely non-itchy.
The cardigan has been designed with ¾ length sleeves, but the pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves. With Charlie you will get a deliciously soft cardigan that you can wear with most of your wardrobe. The cardigan is oversized at the chest, or if you prefer it, you can choose to knit a size smaller than you usually wear. It has a slight A-shape, that you can either choose to knit or leave out.
The yarn kit contains: Önling No 2 merino wool for the elected size and a pattern. The kit does not include Liberty buttons, these can be purchased separately, see related products below.

Directions: The cardigan is worked in rows from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast-on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline at the beginning to give a higher neckline in the back. The yoke is worked with increases to create armholes. Hereafter the work is divided and both sleeves and body are worked separately.
