Bergen Cardigan Pattern

Designed by Evelyn Siatra

The Bergen Cardigan is a stunning creation that beautifully combines Scandinavian motifs with a touch of Fair Isle knitting influence. This design was born out of a desire to adorn a simple, wearable shape with intricate all-over patterning featuring gorgeous colourwork motifs. The cardigan boasts a comfortable, relaxed fit with modified drop shoulder sleeves. The button bands and neckband are skillfully worked in corrugated ribbing, adding a distinctive texture to the piece. Even the hems and cuffs are adorned with the same corrugated ribbing, creating a harmonious and intricate look. It's truly a masterpiece that brings together the best of Scandinavian and Fair Isle knitting traditions.
