Palina Cardigan • Knitting Pattern

18.00

Tailored + fitted, classic + romantic, the Palina Cardigan was inspired by Polish fashion designer + tailor Palina Karnei. This sweater is the perfect knitwear complement to the handsewn garments she designs and creates out of her studio in Krakow, Poland.

This versatile little cardigan will take you from day to night, work to weekend, library to date night.

With five different versions: Vest, Fitted Sleeves, Short Puffed Sleeves, Soft Bishop Sleeves + Full Bishop Sleeves, there’s a Palina Cardigan for every occasion.

The Palina Cardigan is knit in a worsted weight yarn from the bottom up in pieces: Back, Left Front, Right Front, Sleeves, Buttonbands. It is then blocked, seamed together and given buttons (with matching backing buttons for stability). The Short Puffed Sleeve version has a crocheted Sleeve Head Ruffle to add volume in the shoulder.

The Palina Cardigan Pattern is a 35 page PDF document in English.
