This beautiful knitting kit contains everything you need - from the yarn to the pattern - to create the captivating Nektaria cardigan. Designed by Evelyn Siatra, this enchanting cardigan will become the centerpiece of your fall wardrobe.
The Nektaria Cardigan was born out of a desire to decorate a simple, wearable shape, with the intricate allover patterning of delicately textured flower motifs and leaves. The flowers are shaped with small bobbles, while the leaves are formed with an openwork pattern.
