Since we started Stranded, I haven’t had as much time to work on designs for Untangling Knots, but I’ve been slowly working on a few in between other projects. This particular one feels really satisfying to knit because it’s a worsted-weight cropped cardigan, so I can see I’m making progress on it, even when I just knit a few rows here and there.

Initially I was planning on this being the Fall KAL pattern, but as you can see, that’s not going to happen! The Fall KAL is right around the corner, and I haven’t even decided what to do with the button bands on this cardigan. But have no fear! I have another pattern for the Fall KAL that’s ready and waiting for September.

I still have a chunk of the second sleeve left to knit, and then I need to make up my mind about the button bands. I’m debating between twisted rib to match the bottom band and garter stitch to coordinate with the garter ridges that break up the stockinette and lace stripes on the body. Garter stitch would certainly be the easier choice, but I’m not sure if it will look as neat as I’d like. I think the only solution is to give them a try and make up my mind when I can really see them in context. What do you think?
