The pattern for my green cardigan is available today, and I’m also announcing a knit-along for it starting September 15th! The KAL will run until October 30th at which point you should share pictures of your FO in the Untangling Knots group on Ravelry to be eligible to win some cool prizes. Three winners will be randomly selected from those who have completed their sweater on time and will win either three of my patterns of their choosing or a copy of my colorwork e-book which will be released in a few weeks.
Although I’m giving a month and a half for the KAL, this cardigan is a surprisingly quick knit. I made this sample in about three weeks, and one of my test knitters completed hers just two weeks. The cardigan features my usual seamless constructions method. The body is knit from the top down in one piece, and the sleeves are picked up and shaped with short rows. The easy to memorize all over lace pattern is added in as it fits with stockinette used where it doesn’t. You can read more details on Ravelry.
When knit in the recommended yarn, Berroco Blackstone Tweed, it’s the perfect sweater for transitional weather. It’s nice and cozy, but it weighs next to nothing so it makes the perfect cardigan to keep on hand as the weather cools down. I love mine so much that I’ll be knitting another one in a different color of the same yarn during the KAL.
