Gudrid by Sabine Riefler

Gudrid is a warm and soft cardigan in memoriam of a brave Viking woman who not only traveled to Vinland, but also to Rome before she finally settled down in her native Iceland. Yarn and cut of the garment combine cozyness and chicness in one.                                                 
The pattern is a combination of the Rose Bud pattern over 4 rows, traditional ribs and the traditional XO pattern. The zipper gives the tailored cardigan a modern touch.
