One of my biggest projects, but because I used Eco wool and size 10 needles, this was one was super fast. It is knit from the hood down, and after your separate the sleeves from the body, it really flies.
As I was knitting, I kept trying it on, and was getting worried about this yarn. I was starting to think it was a bit too bulky for me, but I was wrong. I gave it a nice spritz, put some towels on it and steamed it for a bit, and now it is a very nice fabric. My boys think it is so cozy, and Addison loves the smell of the wool.
Pattern: Neck Down Hooded Cardigan from Knitting Pure and Simple
Yarn: Eco wool in chocolate, about 2.1 hanks
Mods: I knit the smallest size, and did not do all the increases for the back gusset. I wanted it to be more straight, and less A-line. I did about half of the increases.
I also knit about 8 inches of ribbing on the sleeves, instead of doing the garter stitch.
I will be back sometime next week. I am headed off to a special weekend with some of my best girls from college. Have a great rest of the week!
