Tailored


After finishing the MacPalmikkoneule cabled cardi I still had some balls remaining of the yarn. Swing from Garnstudio had been in my queue for a while and seeing Suvi Simola’s version made me want to knit it even more. A few yardage calculations confirmed me that I had enough yarn and off I went.




  • On Ravelry: Tailored Cardi #1

  • Pattern: Swing from Garnstudio DROPS / Ravelry

  • Yarn: about 6.5 skeins (316 g/935 yd/855 m) of Novita Wool in colorway #192 (dark teal)

  • Needles: 3.5 mm circular

  • Mods: I couldn’t get gauge so I took stitch counts from size S and measurements (in cm) from size XS; moss stitch borders instead of garter stitch; knitted body in one piece; top-down seamless set-in sleeves with short-row shaping



I’m so pleased with how this turned out that I’m already knitting another one in apple green. I want one in every color! :)
