Kersidan is a sweater in stockinette stitch that is knitted in a lace weight yarn but with larger needles to get this nice light effect. The colorblock option in the lower body and sleeves allows you to play with the colours.
The construction is top-down.
The sample version was knitted in the Suri Lace base (Moel View Yarn), made of baby suri alpaca and silk. This base allows to have a light knit but relatively warm and very soft!
