Schoodic Cardigan by Hannah Fettig
size: between 36" and 40"
Yarn: Brooks Farm 50/50 Silk Merino Four Play
Took about 2 weeks to do. Raglan shaping, major skills include simple simple cabling (twisted stitches, really), SSK, K and P, K2Tog, light grafting (the collar pieces at the back of the neck). No seaming. My daughter falls between the two smallest sizes (see specs), which influenced my choice of yarn. I knit to a gauge that is pretty true for Hannah Fettig's patterns, and was able to choose a thicker yarn (the pattern calls for DK), and go up a needle size to get exactly what I needed. Swatches are where it's at, People. Knit your swatches! The only adjustment I made to the pattern was in the sleeve length. The Daughter wanted them to be a tad longer. That was it.
Have a wonderful week! I am headed off to drop off large dogs to visit with Grandpa, pick folks up and have a field trip kind of day. Hopefully, I will be able to find time to drop in and share pictures as we go along.
