Cigar is a long-sleeved, slightly boxy and short cardigan with dropped shoulders that make the cardigan a timeless and very comfortable basic. It's designed by Marthe Forodden.
Cigar is knitted bottom up, seamless and worked flat. The sleeves are knitted top down with picked up and knit sts around the armhole. The Braid Stitch - very delicate and easy to remember - runs along the hem and button band, around the armholes and cuffs.

Caring for your finished object
All our yarns are non-superwash yarns, so any project made from them is best washed by hand in lukewarm (not hot!) water, using a little bit of wool wash or gentle soap. Take care not to wring the FO, but gently squish any excess water out of it, wrap it in a towel, roll it up, and do a little "dance on the towel" to press any remaining water out of the item. Then, lay it flat to dry.
