Cardigan Knitting kit
The Abries Cardigan is shaped like a cardigan with a button front. It has a straight cut that falls to the hips. The set-in sleeves fit perfectly over the shoulders and highlight the silhouette. The fancy stitch that adorns the neckline and the opening in the front brings femininity to this model. The Abries Cardigan is knitted in Top Hair, a 100% natural yarn made from kid mohair and silk, the best of mohair, thick, light, fluffy and warm at the same time. The stitch is full, not openwork, as it is a thick mohair. Wear this cardigan for all occasions, at the office, with friends, for going out or for big events. It lends itself to many combinations in casual or dressy fashion.

The Abries Cardigan is knitted with needles n°5 (8 US). To knit it, you need to know the following knitting techniques:

The maintenance of your cardigan
Take care of your cardigan to keep it long. Space out the washings and use little detergent. Simply air it out for a few hours (one night) to get rid of any bad smell. Hand wash or machine wash if it has a wool balance cycle. Wash and rinse at a constant temperature <30 degrees. Rinse without adding softener and squeeze without wringing. Dry flat in a well-ventilated area. Mohair cannot be ironed. Place on the back of a chair to loosen any creases. Store flat in an unconfined area.
