At the end of summer, when the temperature begins to cool, a multitude of mushrooms stick out their brown heads and dot the mossy lands of the Scandinavian forests. It is the “karl Johan sponges” (Boletus Edulis) that herald the change of season. Named after these little heralds of Autumn, the Karl Johan sweater is a classic turtleneck sweater. It will become a basic in your wardrobe from the first frosts.

This sweater is knitted in the round and seamlessly from the neckline down in stockinette stitch. The borders and the turtleneck are knitted in 1/1 rib. This sweater has an elegant construction with the line of the shoulders highlighted, a neckline shaped in short rows and slightly balloon sleeves.

The sizes offered for this pattern are inclusive. This sweater is designed to be worn with a positive ease of 0-10 cm [0-4]''.
