The mystery sweater knit-a-long  that I have been a part of is done!  It looks quite adorable – poofy sleeves and all!

Since this year’s spring is warmer than normal for most folks, the majority of knit-alongers decided to knit short sleeves on their sweaters.  I, on the other hand, opted to follow the pattern for long sleeves so that Kirtana could get some use out of it later this year too.  The longer sleeves provided for some interesting knitting and the poofiness adds the perfect bit of whimsy to the finished sweater.

The sweater is knit from the top down and has a very interesting lace yoke.  Different sized needles are used to knit the lace section ensuring that the pattern is undisturbed while automatically “adding inches”.

Elena is a talented designer and this is the second pattern of hers that I am knitting.  Her designs are always interesting and the finished objects turn out cute as well as functional.

    I’m glad you chose to knit the cardigan with long sleeves as they’re so interesting and add such a lovely detail to the garment. Your honey looks beautiful and I bet she loves her new sweater.
