Cardigan knitting kit
The Visby is a dressy cardigan that can be enjoyed on the daily. Its straight cut, set-in sleeves, fantasy stitches, and slanted yoke that enhances the front all work together perfectly to produce a chic look. The Visby cardigan doesn’t have buttons and is worn open with a blouse or a top in a contrasting colour, and a skirt or trousers.
Easy to knit
Although it is knitted with fantasy stitches, the Visby is anything but hard to knit and is achievable by anyone with a bit of experience. It is knitted using 5 mm needles and Luxor, our slightly fuzzy 100 % natural yarn made up of alpaca, merino, and cotton. To achieve the Visby cardigan, you must know these techniques:
- Knit and purl stitches
- Decrease and increase stitches
- Cast off stitches
If you know these techniques, you can knit this very feminine cardigan. The companion booklet provides instructions for the knitting pattern and guides you through this project step-by-step.
Our Luxor yarn comes in 4 colours for this design: plum (the one on display), midnight blue, marbled grey[MK1] , and natural. Choose the colour you like best.
You can then choose between sizes S, M, L, and XL. Each corresponds to a specific knitting pattern and yarn quality. Refer to our size guide when in doubt.
You wish to knit a longer cardigan that covers the hips? Simply order one extra ball of yarn in the colour of your choice!
The knitting kit
The kitcontains everything you need to knit a Visby cardigan: Luxor balls of yarn in the colour of your choice, knitting needles, and a companion booklet with instructions to help you knit this piece. If you do not need needles, don’t forget to select “no needle” or select the corresponding needles [MK2] if you wish to order them with your kit.
You will also need a few extra tools such as a tape measure, a pair of scissors, and a yarn needle. Visit our Haberdashery page to complete your knitting set.
You can wash your cardigan by hand or in the washer under 30°C on a wool cycle. Do not put in the dryer, instead leave it to dry flat in a ventilated location. Store your cardigan on a flat surface but do not hang it. You may also iron your garment.
