This kit includes a colour-printed pattern card with full instructions in all sizes and all the yarn required to make Wave in your chosen size. Wave is a standard fit cardigan with set in sleeves. The body is entirely worked in the round and the sleeves are knitted separately in the round to the armholes, with the sleeve caps knitted back and forth in rows.

The Wave design is also available as a hat set, click here for the Wave Hat Set.


I originally designed Wave cardigan for my Fair Isle Knitting book. Here I have re-worked and updated the design in Hebridean 2 Ply, the patterns and colours vividly reflect bright light on breezy summer seas. This is an excellent project for a knitter experienced in the stranded technique.
