This cardigan is the very first pattern that Eri Shimizu - Eritml - designed for one of our yarns, and we deeply love it, not only for this reason, but also because it's definitely a cozy, warm and very wearable piece to get wrapped in.


The pattern is knitted in A Stormy Blend DK in OMBRA colorway, that yields a very defined stitch definition in this slipped-stitches fabric; Dodo is a raglan yoke cardigan worked from the top down. The yoke and body are worked back and forth. The sleeves, set aside at the underarm, are worked top down in the round.

The name “Dodo” was chosen by Eri after her favorite story “Alice in Wonderland” and thought this stitch motif looked like a bird’s feather.


**Please note that PATTERN is NOT INCLUDED in the yarn purchase **
