Fager, meaning “fair” in Swedish, is a simple and elegant cardi, involving a top-down A-line shape with a ribbon closure. This knits up extremely quickly at a loose gauge, and involves almost no purling.
Worked with a fingering yarn held together with a lace weight mohair, you get a soft, warm and cosy cloud of a cardi to wrap around yourself in the chilly evenings. A perfect project for self-striping sock yarns! Prefer a heavier drape? Try worsted weight instead!
Fitting an actual bust circumference of: 28/32/36/40/44 (48/52/56/60) inches
Materials and tools:
Fingering weight yarn, held together with a lace weight mohair
Of each yarn you need approximately: 400/450/500/550/610 (700/800/930/1000) yards or 365/410/460/500/560 (640/730/850/920) meters
Note: Depending on how the yarns work with each other, you sometimes need less of the lace mohair. This cardigan can also be worked up just as nicely with two fingering threads held together, or one thread of any worsted weight yarn.
