Cardigan to knit
The Kappl Cardigan is knitted in Top Hair, a soft yarn made of kid mohair and silk, which gives it exceptional comfort. The fancy stitch reinforces the natural swelling of this yarn and gives the cardigan a soft appearance while keeping a great lightness. It has a straight cut with set-in sleeves and a rounded neckline. The cardigan is buttoned at the front with mother-of-pearl buttons dyed in the color of the yarn. This cardigan is a classic to have in your wardrobe for all occasions. Practical and easy to wear, it can be worn with both formal and casual outfits, open over a blouse or T-shirt, or closed.
The Kappl Cardigan is knitted with needles n°5 (8 US). It is aimed at experienced knitters. To knit it, you need to know the following techniques:
• Increase and decrease stitches in a fancy stitch
• Knit double stitches
• Pick up stitches
If you know these techniques, you can tackle this project.
You can choose the color that suits you the best from the wide range of Top Hair yarn. Remember to match it with your favorite outfits. Select your size and, if you have any doubt, refer to our size guide.
The kit contains everything you need to make the Kappl cardigan: balls of wool in the chosen color, buttons dyed in the color of the yarn, optional knitting needles, a heart-shaped sequin to sew and the knitting pattern with all the explanations for sizes S, M, L and XL. If you don't need the needles, check on "without needles". You will need additional knitting accessories: a pair of scissors, a tape measure, a wool needle, marking rings for assembly and a stitch holder.

To keep your cardigan for a long time, space out the washings and avoid wearing it several days in a row. Hand wash or machine wash it (if it has a wool balance program) at 30 degrees with a small amount of mild detergent. Rinse with clean water and the same temperature without adding softener. Dry it flat in a ventilated area and change places your cardigan to avoid creasing. Dry flat in an unconfined area.
