The beautiful drape of our soft Cheeky Merino Joy makes the new cardigan by Martina Behm both casual and wonderfully cuddly - Wrap & Warm. Martina has created a design that is just as unique as you are. She has decided on our colour Blackberry Sorbet rendering freshness and vivacity to her cardigan - choose your favourite tone for your personal version. You can easily adapt Wrap & Warm to your individual size and preferences as you knit. The width of the edges and the cuffs, the sleeve length, the width and length of the cardigan - make them exactly as you like. Wear the cardigan open, or close it with a shawl pin. If you knit the edges in different widths as suggested, you will get two different lengths and looks to go with whatever you’re in the mood for.
The simple design with its interesting construction is knitted seamlessly in the round. The shape is obtained merely by increasing and decreasing. Also, it is almost purl-free. You only purl a few stitches for the textured edges.
