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!!
