– I have designed a dress cardigan that is light as a feather to wear, says Helen Olsson who designed the cardigan. The cardigan has decorative braids, especially beautiful is the sleeves of the cardigan where braids form the sleeve cuff.
The cardigan is knitted from top to bottom and in one piece, which means minimal assembly. Weave in both ends, the cardigan is completely assembly-free.
The classical button band is replaced with a twisted edge, which is knitted at the same time as the rest of the cardigan. That means the cardigan is knit back and forth (purl stitches). The sleves are knitted on circular needle. The cardigan looks best with a small buckle or pin/brooch at the top, and then keeping in open below.
