Product Details

Deriving its name from the Finnish word for acorn, Terho Cardigan is a three-color DK-weight colorwork cardigan with oak leaves and hanging acorns on the round yoke. The cardigan is worked seamlessly in the round from the top down, then steeked in the end to form an opening for the front.

Short rows placed at the bottom of the yoke help to create a well-fitting, round neckline. The body of the garment can be knit with or without waist shaping; instructions for both variations are provided. Two rows of acorns decorate the cuffs of the full-length sleeves which are then finished with ribbing. Ribbed button bands embellished with a contrast-colored i-cord edging are worked last.

Terho Cardigan comes in 10 sizes from XS to 6X. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Only charted instructions are given for the colorwork.

Gauge: 19 sts × 29 rnds = 10 cm / 4" on larger needles, blocked
