Karersee is the result of a collaboration between Laine des Iles and the French designer Sandrine Costa.
Karersee is the name of a small lake in Italy offering a majestic view of the Dolomite mountains. From the Faroe Islands for the yarn, to Ireland for inspiration taken from traditional Irish sweaters, this design is like an invitation to travel. The cable motif, beautifully showcased by this yarn, recalls the meandering paths that we take when exploring the wild mountain terrains, its name recalls the caress of the autumn breeze when nature once again falls silent and mysterious.
Karersee is a loose and comfortable sweater worked from the bottom up in the superb Snaeldan 3 ply - a French interpretation of the traditional sweaters of the Irish Aran Islands, in yarn from the Faroe Islands. This is a real island sweater!
PLEASE NOTE: You have the option to knit this sweater either completely in moss stitch, or with a stocking stitch back. You will therefore receive 2 pdf files, one for each version. Please indicate your preferred language (French or English).
