Description: Plain knit cardigan and skirt suit in a bouclé yarn. The required tension for Whirligig yarn in general on 4mm needles pushes it from a DK into a worsted/Aran weight yarn type - slub yarns tend to require slightly looser knitting; however this design is knitted on slightly smaller needles making the tension fall within the Double Knitting range.
The pattern has a very slight (barely visible) horizontal crease.
