This pattern comes in printed format, beautifully presented in an A5 booklet.

This gorgeous cardigan is full of soft details. Designed to be worn open and featuring a flattering drop-shoulder construction. Kapua is designed to be knit by holding a strand of lace-weight yarn together with a brushed mohair. A heavenly combination would be Jaipur Silk Fino with Silk + Kid Mohair - it would be like wearing a hug!

This design will be equally as gorgeous knit in 4ply Blackwattle Kunzea or for a more everyday finish choose a soft bouncy merino such as Belissimo 4.

With clear, easy-to-follow instructions, easy-to-understand sizing info and a clean pattern layout.
