The Ystad cardigan is a combination of casual elegance and bold fashion. Its original cut, straight and wide, makes it very comfortable and allows multiple ways of wearing it: open, closed with a brooch, by folding more or less the neckline. A way to have several cardigans in one! Knitted in Céleste, a yarn made of alpaca and silk, the Ystad Cardigan is very soft, warm and light, for maximum comfort.
The Ystad Cardigan is knitted with needles n°5 (8 US). The pattern corresponds to the intermediate level. To knit it, you need to know the basic knitting techniques:
• Knit knit and purl stitches
• Increase and decrease
• Pick up stitches
If you have these techniques, you can go for this project. Knitting beginners with a little experience will need help to tackle the pattern.
Céleste yarn is available in a wide range of colors. Choose the color that suits you, in harmony with your wardrobe. Select your size and, if necessary, visit our size guide to determine your size.
The knitting kit
The kit contains wool balls, knitting needles, a little heart to sew on your cardigan and the knitting pattern with all step-by-step explanations for sizes S to XL and dimensional drawings. If you don't need the needles, check "without needles” or click on "with needles" if you want them in your kit. To make this cardigan, you will need some tools: a pair of scissors, a tape measure, a wool needle for assembly and a stitch holder. Visit our “Haberdashery” page to complete your kit. In the "buttons" section you will find a metal brooch with different finishes.
Your cardigan, knitted in a 100% natural material, deserves the greatest care to be kept for a long time. Space out the washings as much as possible and use little detergent. By regularly airing your cardigan, it will lose any bad smell. Hand wash at <30 degrees or machine wash it if it has a wool balance cycle. Rinse with clean water and the same temperature, without adding softener. Dry flat in a ventilated area. Céleste yarn cannot be ironed.
