Cardigan No 8 by My Favourite Things Knitwear, Isager knitting kit
Knitting kit in Aran Tweed for Cardigan No 8 by My Favourite Things Knitwear
Cardigan No. 8 is designed by the talented Louise, who is the woman behind 'My Favourite Things Knitwear'. It is a beautiful, oversized cardigan with a v-neck and heavy pockets. The boxy silhouette, the extra long sleeves and the rustic yarn choice give it the perfect boyfriend-fit, while the deep v-neck adds a feminine expression to the cardigan. Here we knit it in 1 strand of Aran Tweed and 1 strand of Alpaca 1 from Isager, and the result is beautiful, soft and light.
The knitting kit contains: Aran Tweed and Alp 1 from Isager for the selected size and a knitting pattern.

Sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) are equivalent to the European standard sizes: 34 (36) 38 (40) 42 (44) and suit a body circumference of approx. 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) cm [31.5-33.5 (33.5-35.5) 35.5-37.5 (37.5-39.5) 39.5-43.25 (43.25-47.25) inches]. For example: You measure 89 cm [35 inches] at your widest + 35 cm [13.75 inches] = 124 cm [48.75 inches].
