Berroco Fryda Cardigan Kit PRE-ORDER

PRE-ORDER KIT (see below for details)

Fryda is my kind of knit - it's a simple cardie knit in one piece from the top-down. As far as the construction goes, it's a lot of flow. The only technically interesting part is in the button band, which is worked semi-separately and then seamed with mattress stitch, but it's such a pretty detail and gives it that little bit of polish - I think the effort will be minimal compared to the pay-off. I think an advanced beginner would be fine with this pattern.

The yarn is really the star of the show here - the very subtle mottled effect is created by holding 1 strand of a worsted weight yarn with 1 strand of a hand-dyed kid-mohair ... a simple system but the effect is magic! The kid mohair also gives the sweater a bit of texture, softening the outline with a gentle aura. The combination also bulks up the tension, making it a little bit faster to work-up on 5.5mm/US9 needles.
