Mountain Lake Cardigan – Knit Pattern
You can also find my patterns on Ravelry
Mountain Lake Cardigan is a top down cardigan inspired by one of my favourite places: the mountain lake. It’s a cardigan perfect to be personalised by your needs and desires. You can choose to make it using just one colour or using 4 different ones. If you choose this last option, you will work the first part with the raglan increases and playing with stripes. The bust part is work with one colour, but it has some lace work to keep it interesting.
With the cardigan being made top down, you can also choose to have it shorter or longer.
You can also choose to close it with buttons (like the one in the sample) or to keep it simple and close it with just a nice brooch.
This cardigan is made in collaboration with Colori Naturali and here you can buy the kit.
You can also buy the yarn Isadora from Yarnz.
