We have been working on a pattern update of SUGAR (Sukkertrøjen in Danish), an older but very popular design. The new version is knitted in Merlin and Trio and has a better fitted set-in-sleeve.

SUGAR was a gift to Marianne from her aunt, Ella. The original sweater was green and Ella wore it while she was gardening. She exchanged it for sugar ration stamps during World War 2, hence the name.

Marianne loved it, and in the 80s she made a knitting pattern for it which quickly became a classic because of it’s lovely yet simple cable pattern and beautiful collar. The pattern is mostly worked in garter stitch, but with little cables worked over the 2 stockinette stitches between the garter stitch stripes.
