I cannot believe I haven’t shared details of this finished sweater yet!  I guess since it’s been put away with the rest of our winter stuff, it was out-of-sight out-of-mind.


This pattern is Twigs and Willows from Alana Dakos’ book Botanical Knits.  I really enjoyed knitting the yoke on this sweater with the cabled leaves and vine motif.  The pattern for the yoke is written as well as charted.  For this garment, I used Cascade 220 in a heathered green.


If you’ve been following my blog a while, you know that as much as I love seamless knits, I really don’t mind seaming sweater pieces together while finishing.  Be warned that this is a seamed pattern.


The sweater is slightly cropped with an extra long ribbed bottom edge.  I love how the pattern incorporates waist shaping into the ribbed hem.


The bulk of this cardigan is done in plain stockinette, so, it’s a relatively quick knit (says she who took almost a year from cast on to blog post, hah!)

I’ve got a tweedy shawl on the needles even though it’s the wrong season to be knitting something this warm and wooly! I will never learn!!
