Gepard Idun – striped mohair sweater
Idun is a stripey mohair sweater by Gepard, and it puts itself in the current of fashion with its colourblovk stripes knitted from several strands of our mohair/silk blends, Kid Silk 5 and Kid Seta. The edges are knitted in CottonWool 5 for a firmer touch. Make sharp contrast colours or soft gradients - Idun is full of possibilities!
At Uldstedet, we only sell printed patterns, which is also why we only sell patterns 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.
