Once the steeking was done there wasn’t much left. I grafted the underarms, wove in the ends, and attached 11 little brown buttons.
I definitely recommend Plum Frost if you’re looking to try a little colorwork. And if you don’t want to cut up your knitting the pattern includes pullover directions too.
Now I have another finished cardigan. I admit I’m loving my cardigans more than my pullovers in this weird, warm winter that Vermont is experiencing. I love the warm brown shetland wool of this sweater, the pretty red and purple in the colorwork. It’s a great cardigan, lighter weight than many of my other sweaters. It was perfect for strolling around outside while I was in South Carolina for training last week.
Of course the locals thought I was crazy. They were all wearing coats and hats and mittens…
While I was traveling I also finished my first scarf for the HRBP cancer research fundraiser*.
The pattern is Knitty’s Wisp. Instead of the silk/mohair yarn I used Plymouth yarn Worsted Tweed. I also cast on a different number of stitches and left out the eyelets along the edges. Other than that it’s just exactly the same…
*It’s certainly not too late to knit a scarf if you still want to get involved!
