Traveler’s Cardigan by Hailey Smedley @Ozetta


The Traveler’s Cardigan is worked from the top down and is closed in the front with buttons. It features back shaping and dropped shoulders for a relaxed fit. The sleeves are designed to be loose and finished with a balloon cuff. The button band is worked as you go which means less finishing work. A classic design meant for everyday wear.

Manchelopi is an unspun yarn that is made 100% with Manchega wool. Its color shades and its twist-free slivers make this “cheese” a rare and high-quality material with which you will be able to create unique and inimitable clothing.

As for the thickness, due to its double sliver, it will depend on our control of the needles. If we want to knit it in two strands to make it easier for us, we would be facing a thickness of 230m / 100g (DK); on the other hand, if you are one of the highly skilled ones and you dare with a single strand, you will have double the meters: 460m / 100g (Fingering).
