Kalinda

C$9.00Price

The pattern for Kalinda includes instructions to knit a sleeveless top or a long sleeves sweater.

 

Both versions are knit from the top-down, starting with the back to the underarm, stitches are then picked up to knit the front and finally the stiches are joined to knit the body in the round. The body is straight, there are no shaping. Stitches are picked up at the end to knit the collar.

 

Both versions feature a beautiful but easy ‘feather and fan’ stitch pattern framing the sides.
