Yarn kit for Dakkar cardigan, a warm and cozy cardigan with a cleverly designed stripe pattern. If you want to cuddle up in a warm, long cardigan or a lightweight coat in the fall, this is the one. In a beautiful mix of Isager’s Alpaca 1, Highland Wool and Silk Mohair, designed in a cleverly stripe pattern and knitted in different directions, it is a different knitting experience, without getting too complicated. Cosy pockets complete the experience. The cardigan can be made so it is reversible, it only requires extra pocket edges on the one side and beautiful seaming in the sides.
This yarn kit contains: Isager Alpaca 1, Highland Wool and Silk Mohair for the elected size. The yarn kit does not include knitting pattern. The pattern is part of the book "Yndlingsstrik 4" (in Danish), and can also be purchased separately (in Danish and English) - see related products below.
