.... Cardigan ! Remember the 1st one that I knitted last year ? I just love wearing it so much that I knitted another.
It is such a great pattern - top down & all knitted in one piece & allows for some creativity especially for the bands.
I used a feather & fan stitch pattern for my 1st FW & now a chevron stitch pattern. This cardigan is knitted with a shorter length & shorter sleeves too for a more casual look. I just love how it turned out.....
Once again, I used Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Lace, a merino/cashmere blend which is so soft & nice to knit with. I use only 3/4 of a 1200 yds skein. Knitting lace weight on 3.5 mm needles can be tedious but I just love the feel of the yarn & the relaxing rhythm of stocking stitch.
This pattern is a good template for creating endless versions of a cardigan & I am sure I will be knitting another one !
