Product Info:

A quirkily sweet sweater knitted from the bottom up starting with corrugated ribbing and leading into a simple eyelet lace body. The stranded colourwork yoke is inspired by the vibrant embroidered necklines of Guatemalan and Mexican huipil and the slightly more subdued yokes of 1960s Fair Isle cardigans. Sólja gets its name from the Faroese national flower, the yellow marsh marigold, which heralds the arrival of spring. Indeed it was my quest for the perfect yellow which led me to knitting this sweater in Navia. Children's sizes are available in a separate pattern called Mini Sólja, if you want yo outfit your whole family!

If you would like both adult Sólja and Mini Sólja patterns you can buy both together for the special price of £9 - choose on the drop-down menu.

Sizes

1 (2,3,4,5)
Think of these as womens XS through to XL, if you must. The sweater is designed to be a relaxed
fit and I advise having
a look at the schematic to see what works best for you and the type of
fit you like. 

 

Yarn - Navia Trio
The yellow colourway has one colour less since it has one row of flowers less at the yoke.
