Knitting pattern for Cassandra, a striped top in our lovely and sustainable Önling No 2, made of 100% merino wool in Italy. The wool has been carded using a special technique, making the yarn soft, airy, and delicately - absolutely non-scratchy. With Cassandra you get a fantastic and soft top that can be used for many occassions. Knit it with stripes or make it unicolor - the variations are endless.
