Hanne Falkenberg Saga Sofistica

Price from
$79.63

Saga is a good example of what Hanne Falkenberg does so well. It is a simple tunic/slipover with a seemingly complicated pattern. The pattern is however composed only in garter and slipped stitches - at no time will you be knitting with more than one strand. 
The simplicity of the model is as simple as it seems. It has a T-shirt-like cut which is created by knitting lengthways. The back and front are knitted as one piece which is then sewn at the side seams. The top is finished with garter edges.

This top was first made in Falkenbergs Shetland wool soon becoming so popular that a long-sleeved version was added as well as this version. which is knitted in Sofistica, Hanne Falkenbergs cotton/linen-blend. Sofistica does however have a slightly different gauge, which required a full rewrite of the pattern to make sure that is now a perfect fit for the new yarn choice.

The kit contains the pattern as well as enough yarn for the largest of the four sizes. The refill only contains yarn.
