EDDA-HERLDK-8

Edda Cardigan Kit

Size: XS / S / M
Combination: Original Set

Designed by Evelyn Siatra

The Edda features a highly visible jacquard-striped pattern reminiscent of the intricate storytelling found in the ancient Norse Eddas. Just as the Eddas are filled with rich narratives and vibrant  characters, the Edda cardigan weaves a compelling tale through its design.

The V-neck button fronts not only add a touch of classic elegance but also provide versatility in adjusting your comfort level. Lined pockets offer a practical element, ensuring your hands stay cozy during the chilly winter months. The modified drop shoulder construction is a testament to thoughtful design, making this cardigan not only stylish but exceptionally comfortable.

Wearing the Edda cardigan is like wrapping yourself in a warm, visual narrative - a perfect companion for the heart of winter, just as the Eddas themselves have warmed the hearts of those who appreciate ancient storytelling and fine craftsmanship. 

The sweater is knit in 5 colours, in a mix of Herlig DK (H) and Lascaux DK (L).

The Original colour combination is MC- Fortuitous (H), CC1 - Baby Aubergine (H), CC2 - Contented Grapes (H), CC3 - Irish Linen (L), and CC4 - Pyrite (L).

In Stock Yarns:  We will pick and ship your in-stock yarn as soon as possible, within a few business days. Please note that if your order also includes dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 1 - 2 weeks for us to dye and ship your yarn.

Working with Hand Dyed Yarn:While we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
