Cardigan Knitting kit
The Sériole cardigan is an elegant and refined cloth that can be worn in all seasons, on many occasions. Its straight and loose shape, coming down to the hips, enhances the silhouette while being very comfortable. It is knitted with Top Hair, a light yarn made of mohair and silk, which is warm in winter and cool in summer. The silk gives the mohair hair beautiful highlights. The knit is enhanced by gold stripes, a very distinguished fantasy. Wear the Seriole cardigan over skirt or trousers, you can button it up and wear it as a jumper or leave it open over a shirt or top.
Easy to knit
The Sériole cardigan is knitted with needles n°5 (8 US) for the body and n°4 (6 US) for the edges. The following techniques are necessary to knit it:
• Knit stockinette stitch and ribs
• Change the yarn for making the stripes
• Decrease and increase stitches
• Bind off stitches
• Pick up stitches
If you master these knitting techniques, you can make it work this model.
The cardigan is available in the different Top Hair colors: red, navy blue, mouse grey, pearl, powder and white. All these colors go very well with the Vega gold yarn. Choose the size that suits you the best. You can help you with the size guide to determine your size. The finish is often what gives a model its character. For this cardigan, several buttons are available as customizations: the mother-of-pearl enhances the silky look while the color-dyed buttons make the buttoning discreet and very neat.
The kit contains everything you need to make the Seriole cardigan: Top Hair yarn in the chosen color, the Vega yarn for the gold stripes, buttons, needles and the pattern with step-by-step explanations. If you don't need the needles, click on "without needles".
Mohair is a fragile fibre that requires some care. Space out the washings as often as possible by airing your cardigan. Bad smells will disappear quickly. In case of stains, wash your cardigan in lukewarm water with a mild detergent. Do not add softener to the rinse water. Squeeze without wringing and dry flat in a ventilated area. Store flat your cloth in an unconfined area.
