Pacific Northwest Cardigan June 3, 2006Posted by merp in FOs, Knitting.
And it’s been done for a week, but too hot even to model it. Now it’s cooled down a little, so here it is! Finally!
The pattern was imaginatively called “neck-down v-neck raglan cardigan.” Sexie. So I’m calling it my “Pacific Northwest Cardigan” to better express its character. You know, greenish and fuzzy, like the moss on a damp tree trunk. Perfect for chilly days, but not much good for a deep freeze.
Here it is blocking:
Pattern: Neckdown V-Neck Shaped Cardigan
Yarn: Lionbrand Woolease, in Forest Green Heather. Got it half-price at Joann years ago. Liked it a lot – much more than I expected.
Needles: 6 circular and dpn
Modifications: Nothing more than changing the length of the body and sleeves slightly to fit.
Assessment: Great pattern! So simple, no seaming. I will wear this a lot.
And here’s an oddity to my knitting. I discovered when I switched from knitting back and forth (on circulars) to knitting in the round for the sleeves (on dpns) that I had been twisting all my knit stitches. Could not figure out how to twist them for the sleeves, so there’s this shift at the shoulder. Also I have no idea if I’ve always twisted them or if I somehow short-circuited and started twisting them at some point. It was one of those Escher moments for the mind.
Here are a couple of tiny projects I made last month, too:
