My Textured Yoke Cardigan (Ravelry link)…c’est fini!

Textured Yoke Cardigan

Pattern: 113-17 Jacket with Raglan Sleeves by DROPs Design
Yarn: Madelinetosh Eyre in “Moorland”
Needles: Size US 8/5 mm

I did a few mods to the pattern :: reduced the number of stitches when I cast on and added the button bands later.  Also, I changed a bit of the yoke pattern to seed stitch and altered the sleeve length to get long sleeves. 

The Madelinetosh Eyre is just a dream to knit with like I’ve said before.  After it’s been blocked, it’s a luxurious molten hug. 

The only downside to blocking this sweater is that the garment has grown lengthwise, body sleeves and all.  I don’t usually wear my sweaters this long, but oh well.  I guess my row gauge was off by a mile!!!

This project took less than 8 skeins and I have almost 5 skeins of yarn leftover.  I think that I may just be able to get another garment out of it – a vest maybe, or a sweater for the tot.  That’s for another day.

    Love it, I like that the yarn is semi solid, shows off the pattern nicely. Now what I really want to know is where the heck is your snow???
    I see now where your daughter gets her gorgeous curls from!

    OMG! That is just beautiful, Preeti! Amazing photos from Vineet too. Less than 8 skeins huh? Yu’re considerably smaller than me so chances are whatever I decide to knit I will use all 14 skeins of my Eyre!

    I love the seed stitch on the yoke, and the buttons look gorgeous. Thanks for the note about the length post-blocking.

    Molten hug……..nice way to put it.

    The cardigan is absolutely stunning. I love the colors. You look stunning in that cardigan. I don’t want to come across as picky, but aren’t the first two buttons closer together than the next two buttons? Is that intentional? BTW, love the phrase ‘Molten Hug’.
