Regn was a Mystery cardigan pattern published in 2015! Available for free using the links below.
Regn, Swedish for “rain”, is worked from the top down and in one piece, using worsted or aran weight yarn – making this a good wardrobe piece for autumn and winter. It’s a good opportunity to play around a bit with colors, but it can also be worked using just one or two. The fit is relaxed – preferably the same or slightly larger than your actual bust circumference. Sleeves are full length, but this is of course up to your personal preference. And not to forget – the whole garment is worked in garter stitch, so not a purl stitch in sight!
