I Love My Amiga

What a fun knit this cardigan is…Amiga by Mags Kandis.

I have knit this one several times already and each time I fall in love with it again.  This pattern is great for so many yarns…here I have knit it with  Louet “KidLin Lace Weight” …I have equal fallen in love with this yarn …yes mohair and linen…what a blend.

The Linen gives this mohair the needed support in holding the stitch nice and together…I find the stitches are so much nicer then just mohair…more regural and as I would say not all over the place…smile.

Only 3 skeins and 4,5mm needles is all you need about 750 yarns or 700 meters. I went with a nice deep green called “Colorado Spruce…so cozy on a cooler evening sitting outside.

Es mach so richtig Spaß diese Strickjacke zu stricken...Amiga von Mags Kandis.

Ich habe dies schon mehrmals gestrickt und  jedes Mal verliebe ich mich erneut. Dieses Muster eignet sich hervorragend für so viele Garne und Wolle. Hier habe ich es mit Louet “KidLin Lace Weight ” gestrickt … ja Mohair und Leinen … was für eine schöne  Mischung.

Die Linen verleiht dem Mohair die erforderliche Unterstützung in der Masche sie hält schön zusammen ….

Nur 3 Stränge und 4,5 mm Nadeln brauchts Du dazu, so etwa 700 Meter in Wolle. Ich ging mit einem schönen tiefgrünen  “Colodaro Spruce” … So gemütlich und warm ist diese Jacke  wenn ich an einem  kühleren Abend draußen auf dem Sitzplatz  sitze….
