Karelia Sweater Kits by Midori Hirose

$120.00  

This variant is currently sold out.

Karelia is a circular yoke sweater worked from the top down, starting with the neck ribbing. The flower motifs that look like embroidery, are worked with a traditional Estonian technique called Roosimine (Rose in Estonian) which consists of carrying floats on the right side while knitting.


The pattern is available in 12 different sizes, so you can adapt the smallest size for a child, or knit a larger size and obtain an oversized sweater. Also, you can adjust the sleeve and body lengths to your liking by trying it on while knitting.

** Please note this yarn kit does not include a printed copy of the pattern, you will need to purchase that separately on Ravelry.  **
