Knitting kit for Badger sweater (junior) by Anne Ventzel in No 2 + silk mohair
BADGER sweater (junior) is a soft and warm sweater that is worked from the top down. An Italian cast-on is worked at the neck edge, which is followed by a twisted rib edge and a circular yoke worked in a charted stranded pattern. Short rows are worked before the yoke is divided for body and sleeves to create roominess and a good fit.
The stranded pattern is worked from the right side only, so this design is a good project for a knitter without much experience with stranded knitting.
The kit contains: Yarn for the elected size and a digital pattern in English, German and Swedish.
NOTE: For this kit you choose 2 colors of Önling No 2, and we will choose and add 2 matching colors of Silk Mohair for you to knit together with colors A and B (see materials below).
The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-) Read more about digital knitting patterns here.
