Okay, so sorry you have to see the same dress as earlier, this is what happens when you own, like, 3 dresses (the other 2 didn’t go.) Soooo, this is my Marion Cardigan, and I can tell you for sure that this will not be my last knit designed by Andi Satterlund. She is pretty talented, and her small seems to fit me perfectly. I love the look of cropped cardigans because they not only look cute with dresses (my preferred garment choice) but they also don’t ride up, which is a serious problem I have with anything that hits me at the hip (unless it is huge, of course.)
The yarn is Cascade 220 in “Turquoise” and I love this yarn. It is so soft and squishy, and even though it is 100% wool, I don’t find it very hot. It also absorbs, uh, moisture? So that is nice. I found the buttons on Etsy at The Bling Bazaar and I really feel like they make the sweater pop. Love it!
This was my very first cable project, and I am quite proud of it. Honestly, the pattern really holds your hand through the whole thing, and if you can knit, purl and understand basic shaping, you can do this. VERY straightforward knit.
Look at the sleeve detail! I love things like that, how it isn’t simply ribbed but has cables incorporated! These things make for a fun knit. If you want to see more details then you can check out my Ravelry page for it here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
