Inspiration for Ystävä Cardigan

Julkaistu: 10.09.2020







Ystävä cardigan by Jonna Hietala has been one of the most knitted cardigans and it works well with many yarn combinations. Original version is made from DK weight wool + silk mohair but you can get the same gauge with many other yarns. Siina made her own from Tukuwool Sock + Tynn Silk Mohair and I made mine from Tukuwool Fingering + Tilia to get a bit lighter version. 

I used 6 skeins of Tukuwool Fingering and 5 skeins of Tilia to the size 4.
