YARN 13 - Beachcomber Cardigan

By Dario Tubiana

Ever-changing island microclimates mean an extra layer is a must. Reminiscent of poplin prints and vintage sundresses in soft sandy colours, a cosy colourwork cardigan in an Extra Fine Merino Wool blend is easy to throw on and will see you through morning dog walks, dunes on windy days, and trips to the local museum.


  • Scheepjes Metropolis (75% Extra Fine Merino Wool, 25% Nylon; 50g/200m)
    Yarn A: 076 Sevilla x 6 (6: 7: 7: 8) balls
    Yarn B: 078 Lyon x 4 (4: 5: 5: 6) balls
