Cosy (me)

I love this pattern by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne. It was easy to follow, the only thing to be careful is when doing the decreases for the neck, but once you understand the chart and how to form the diamonds it is easy. Loved the sleeves and the short rows. A new technique for me.

I think the cardigan looks cosy and it is very comfortable to wear.

I wanted a natural and rustic yarn and found this one that comes from a French breed of lambs called Bizet. It was not soft at the touch when knitting but after soaking and bloking the cardigan it became very soft. I used less than 400 gr (or less than 800 m) of worsted weight yarn.

Square and stripes

I fell in love since I saw this sweater. I love the fit and the stripes. The pattern has a very unusual construction. I learned a lot while knitting it.
