Meet the newest Scroop Pattern: the Mahina Cardigan!
A pattern based on my circular cardigan has been the most requested addition to the Scroop Pattern range, and here it is, just in time for May the Fourth!
Mahina means moon in Hawaiian, and Mahina Bay is a little cove along the coast of the Wellington Harbour, heading out to Eastbourne. The phases of the moon, the curve of a small bay, and the ripples of waves reaching shore inspired the shape of the cardigan, and all the different ways it can be worn and styled.
The Mahina Cardigan combines simple geometric shapes, a unique customizable fit system, and thoughtful shaping to create a versatile draping cardigan that can be elegant enough to wear as a wrap to a wedding, or casual enough for weekend errands.
Choose from four base shapes (View A Small Circle, View B Medium Circle, Veiw C Large Circle, and View D Oval), and match them to sleeve patterns based on your bicep measurements, and shaping darts customised to your shoulder width for a fit that is based on you, rather than an arbitrary industry standard.
With the choice of cuff bands or hemmed sleeves, and four edge finish options (raw, bound, faced or lace-edged) there are almost limitless fit and finish options.
By popular demand, I extended the size range for the cardigan, so it now fits:
Anyone with Biceps between 10 “- 18.5” or 26cm – 48.5cm
And Shoulders between 12.5″ – 19.5″ or 32 – 49.5cm
