Welcome Mabel's big sister!
This adult sized cardigan of the popular Mabel Cardigan designed for us by Fiona Alice is now available as a kit!
Each kit contains all the beautiful hand-dyed yarn you need to knit your preferred size and the printed pattern.
We have three gorgeous colour options to choose from in each kit: Pattern note:
Please note that for the larger of the sizes in each kit (sizes 2, 4 and 6) it is very important that when you knit your gauge swatch we recommend knitting it using the CC colour as the yardage can be very tight if you use the main colour for the swatch (you might need the yarn!).
There is a great video tutorial
on our blog at LoopKnitLounge.com on how to do the stitch used in the yoke and details in this beautiful pattern.Please note: We suggest dropping down a needle size for the cast-on. We also recommend knitters use a non-stretchy cast-on such as the cable cast-on when using the Eden Cottage Bowland for this pattern.
