Koster Kit - Solid Version from Norah Gaughan contains the PDF pattern download and all the Taconic yarn needed to knit this classic women’s cardigan. Note: The PDF includes instructions for both versions of Koster.
Koster is a classic sweater you’ll find yourself reaching for time and time again. This v-neck cardigan is knit in pieces from the bottom up and seamed, and the front bands and collar are worked in three sections that add extra interest. Worked in Valley Yarns Taconic, a soft and tweedy blend of Merino wool and cashmere that knits up quickly, Koster is a warm sweater that layers beautifully over jeans, skirts, and dresses.
