Dóra peysa pattern english
A simple yet versatile cardigan that is fun to knit and fun to wear. An easy knit that gives you many options in width and length as you knit from the top down. You can try it on as you go and make it yours. You can wear it open, with a shawl pin, add a tie in front or sew on buttons. Very little sewing necessary at the end, knitted in one piece from top-down, back and forth, sleeves knitted in the round. No steeking, button band knitted as you go.
It is more than just one pattern: it offers many choices and you will learn a method to make your perfect cardigan or even several cardigans!
Choose your own colours or use up leftovers from your stash. Above, Dora is wearing one made from her leftovers and the other cardigan uses several colours from the top down to the sleeve separation, then uses one main colour. Anything goes!
