Maleme Cardigan







Photos Tanu Kallio
Collaboration with Kettle Yarn Co.




I was inspired this colourway called Steppe of Beyul DK (baby yak/silk/merino blend yarn from Kettle Yarn Co) that reminds me of October and November colors in Southern Finland. That time when fall colors try to take power in the nature and some greens are still fighting back. This cardigan is worked seamlessly from top down and has a repeating cable pattern that makes knitting interesting. The folded collar gives extra warmth to the neck and an i-cord edging finishes the cardigan. You have to be able to read charts for this pattern.
