 DIY Kit - Recluse Cardigan

This version of the Recluse is worked up using two strands of Dream yarn, so you can choose to use all one color or mix and match for a beautiful two-tone effect.

If you would like to make your Recluse in one color, please select the same color from both dropdowns. 

Note: The Dream yarn version of this pattern uses a size 17 needle. 

Follow the pattern as it is written in the book - except use size US17 (12mm) circular knitting needles and the following change:

Knit with 2 strands of yarn held together

For neckband, pick up 110 sts for S/M and 114 for M/L.  

Gauge for the Dream Recluse is: 8 stitches = 4 inches (10 cm); 11 rows = 4 inches (10 cm).

Level: Intermediate

Sizes: S/M - M/L

Kit Contains:

Note: This kit requires US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  For sleeves and cuffs you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for sleeves and cuffs you can use an additional size US 17 (12 mm) 20’’ (50 cm) circulars OR US 17 (12 mm) DPN’s.

Note: Recluse Cardigan is one of the exclusive styles from "Loopy Mango Knitting" book, so this DIY Kit includes the full pattern book.

If you already have the book and would like to purchase the materials separately, you can find the yarn here and needles here

NOTE: A tapestry needle may be helpful when seaming and securing all loose ends.

Buttons can be added to this style to make it your signature piece.

Care: Hand wash cold, lay flat to dry or tumble dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. Our cotton is un-mercerized and minimally processed to preserve the fiber’s natural softness and elasticity

Yarn made in Italy, kit assembled in the USA.

Shown in Spicy Hot Pink (S/M), and Polar Bear AND Sage (S/M).
