Gepard Idun – Striped mohair sweater D
Idun is a striped mohair sweater by Gepard, with colourful block stripes knitted from several strands of our mohair/silk blend, Kid Seta and Kid Silk 5.
All rib edges are knitted in the heavier yarn - Cotton Wool 5 that gives an extra texture touch and makes a beautiful contrast with the mohair/silk.
The striped and soft knits are very much on trend right now – and Idun makes you able to make your own!
The pattern is available as a pdf after purchase.
