Gepard Dragonfly Cardigan
Dragonfly by Gepard is light and airy cardigan knitted in a simple slipstitch pattern. The mosaic knitting alternates between My FineWool, a soft and fine wool, and Kid Seta, a mohair-ilk blend with lots of loft and mohair halo.
The Dragonfly lends itself to colour experiments – try replacing My FineWool with one the variegated sock yarns by Opal. If you want to try this out, choose a Kid Seta colour that isn't featured on the variegated yarn, but either matches beautifully or is entirely different.
