Glaswegian Kit includes all the squishy, unspun Plötulopi needed for this colorful stranded cardigan.
Glaswegian is knit flat from the bottom up to the underarms and joined to the sleeves to work the yoke. Stitches are picked up for the neckband and button bands and Kitchener stitch at the underarm makes for a seamless finish. Paired with your favorite jeans, Glaswegian is the perfect cardigan to knit this winter, and the Icelandic wool is an excellent choice for outerwear sweaters. Plötulopi is different than traditional yarns—it is an unspun roving, which means that it will pull apart easily, but the Icelandic wool sticks to itself, allowing you to put it back together just as easily with a spit-splice. The resulting knitting is light as a feather, sturdy as any plied yarn, and softer with every wash and wear.
