Kathmandu Polar by Linka Neumann

The Katmandu sweater is inspired by the hippie era of the 60s and 70s. Kathmandu was a popular destination for many hippies in the so-called "hippie trails" at this time.

The sweater is knitted in the round, from the bottom up. This jersey should have a room for movement of around 10-15 cm.

Kathmandu Polar is a thick sweater that can be knitted as a sweater with a short or high neck, or as a "Polar hoodie". The Kathmandu Polar hoodie has a hood and extra length on the body, so you are dressed for extra cold winter nights.

You have the option of buying the pattern together with the yarn in a physical printed version, or you can download the pattern.

The recipe is in Danish



 Knit strength
10 cm on needles 7 mm = 14 stitches
(the needle size is only a guide. If you get a knitting strength with more stitches than the required stitch count, you must change to a larger needle size. If you get a knitting strength with fewer stitches than the required stitch count, you must change to a smaller needle size. It is smart to always make a knitting test to check the knitting strength before you start on the garment, as everyone knits differently and if you choose an alternative yarn, it may behave differently).

Troll and/or Blåne from Hillesvåg yarn

Yarn alternatives
Vams from Rauma yarn
