And now for FO number 2 of 2010 and IntSweMoDo2010!
Pattern: Mondo Cable Cardi
Size: 34 (2″ positive ease)
Yarn: 4.5 x Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in Charcoal (152)
Needle: 3.25mm (collar), 3.75mm (ribbing), 4.0mm
Modifications: I knit the body from shoulder to hem for about 19.5″ instead of 21″.
Pattern is clear and well-written. The collar is genius. GENIUS. I did have problems with the instructions at first. The trick is to just do it. Seriously.
I didn’t put the buttons and snaps on the cardi because I’m not going to wear it buttoned up to the neck. Too feckin’ hot.
The cables look pretty damn amazing in Cotton-Ease. The cardi is a little stiff due to knitting at a slightly smaller than recommended gauge for the yarn but I can live with it.
I think this will make a pretty comfy cardi for the freezing office. Also, I so need to learn to pose better. There goes my shot at being a suuupaaamodel.
