A Chunky Oversized Knit Cardigan Kit

15 10 2015 DIY

The ultimative wool cardigan - ready made or super easy to knit with this new kit.

So trendy with its oversized design and it looks equally cool paired with jeans or dressed up.

Always an absolut eye-catcher...and oh so cosy and soft!! 

The kit contains eight skeins à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 19/15mm birchwood circular knitting needle in 32"/80cm lenghth, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished cardigan meassures 25"/61cm from shoulder seam to shoulder seam and 28"/71cm in length.

I made the sleeves less wide than indicated in the instructions because i liked that better.

You can easily change the pattern a bit around to make it perfectly for you... 

To finish the knitted cardigan you will need about 7-14 hours. It is also available ready made.

Immediately available colors are: Iceberg grey, Polar Bear off white, Mrs. Orange and Café Con Leche. With longer shipping time also Yellow, Green, Red and Pink.

The kit is available here in my DaWanda shop.

17 09 2015 DIY

As promised on my Instagram recently please find the full text and picture tutorial for my chunky knitted round pillow in the current issue of SisterMag No20 on page 304-317.

The graphical layout of the tutorial in the magazine is absolutely beautifully done - really a must-see!! I am so happy how it turned out. 

Also - there is a long interview with me where I talk about my work, upcoming projects and how my love of wool started (incl. glimpses of my childhood ;-)

Thanks so much to the great team of SisterMag - you do such an awesome job and I am so proud to be featured in your gorgeous free digital magazine!!
