Made with a fraction of my mohair yarn addiction, er, collection, the Eden Crop is a toasty handknit inspired by the top-down techniques of my favourite Danish knitters.
Designed on the hoof and one of a kind, it’s made from local mohair, spun up with a little polyester thread. The yarn is undyed so the colour and tone in this piece are varied and subtle. It’s softer and fluffier than it appears in these pics.
There are no seams in this cardigan and it has raglan sleeves, making it a perfect fit for all shapes and sizes. Also, I’m wearing a singlet with it in some of these pics and it’s perfect winter wear in Auckland, just saying!
Size MEDIUM but will be snuggly on anyone up to 14. I’m a 10 with 14 shoulders.
Fan-like rib pattern across shoulders
Rib pattern echoed on sleeves and at hem
Bolero-style (no buttons)
Body width (seam to seam): 48cm
Body length: 48cm (back) 50cm (front edges)
Sleeve width: 20cm
Sleeve length (collar to cuff): 75cm
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR HANDKNIT:
Warm handwash with dedicated wool wash; squeeze gently rolled in a towel to remove excess water after rinsing; dry flat on a towel in the shade (will take a couple of days to dry); do NOT stretch while drying; do NOT tumble dry.
