Ilsa Cardigan in Knitscene Winter 2014

Written by Sarah on October 13th, 2014 Posted in design, FO, knits, KYC Presents, sweater

Did you miss me? I know it’s been a while. September was a crazy month and I just started a new job so I’ve been settling in. But it’s time to get back to business because I’ve got new pattern out!


Ilsa is a drop-shoulder cardigan with color work details on the fronts. The sweater is part of Knit Scene’s Vinter Stickning spread which is all about Scandinavian-inspired pieces. I love Scandinavian design, it’s where I go for inspiration when I’m feeling stuck so I was very excited to make something directly informed by it.

I wanted to do something a little boxy and relaxed. The trends for simple lines really lead me to this shape. Of course, I’m obsessed with neutrals but the little pops of color give it that Scandinavian whimsy.


The pattern is available in Knit Scene’s Winter 2014 issue which you can buy here (print or digital!). And don’t forget to favorite the pattern on Ravelry!

Are you casting on your own Ilsa?

    Sarah, are you kidding me? This is terrific. You get a 10 from me.

    I can’t even tell you how much I love this. I’m imagining it with a skinny little yellow belt at the natural waist, and a pencil skirt and cute green pumps, and I love that just as much as the more relaxed look. I totally want this!!
