70% Bluefaced Leicester Wool and 30% Alpaca.
The shade is tricky to explain, it is a gorgeous turmeric colour. The alpaca dyes differently to the wool so the colour isn’t a solid shade.
The garment is designed with three quarter length sleeves and depending on your body length sits around the hips.
The measurements are 85cm around the bust, length from shoulder is 46cm and sleeve length is 25cm. Because of the nature of a hand knit and because this is garter stitch these measurements will drop (extend) with wear but not by a huge amount and not immediately! Just towards 48cm in length and 26cm on sleeve.
The cardigan does not fasten at the front so would fit suggested bust size 76.5, 81.5cm or 86.5cm
A simple garter stitch cardigan that is a classic.
This garment was hand knitted by one of my knitters and I sewed it together and knit the edgings.
