Gepard Dragonfly Cardigan
Dragonfly by Gepard is light and airy cardigan knitted in a simple slipstitch pattern. The mosaic knitting alternates between My FineWool, a soft and fine wool, and Kid Seta, a mohair-ilk blend with lots of loft and mohair halo.
The Dragonfly lends itself to colour experiments – try replacing My FineWool with one the variegated sock yarns by Opal. If you want to try this out, choose a Kid Seta colour that isn't featured on the variegated yarn, but either matches beautifully or is entirely different.
The pattern is only sold in combination with yarn. if you want to buy the pattern only, we refer you to Gepard Garn, where the pattern is available as a pdf download.
