I finished the second sleeve on Monday and put this baby together last night.
I used Wollmeise DK in the Stella Polaris colorway and a U.S. size 5 needle.
The pattern is pour moi, by Lori Versaci. If you are interested in knitting this lovely cardi, by the way, Lori is hosting a friendly informal KAL in her Ravelry Group. The KAL “officially” started on September 1, but it is a very easy-going group — there are people who started early, like me, as well as people who are in the planning stages. It’s a great way to get some tips and tricks for the pattern as well as see the pretty yarns everyone else is using for their projects.
This is not a difficult pattern, but it does use short-row shaping to get the nicely curved bottom edge. There is some a-line shaping in the body as well.
I’m looking forward to the weather getting cool enough so I can actually wear mine!
So . . . I have one clue left in the Outlander MKAL and that will not be released until Saturday, so I cast on a new project, using this:
That’s Wollmeise 100% merino fingering weight. You can tell I’ve been hoarding that skein for a while since it has one of the old labels.
The colorway is “Zenzi.” Here it is wound into a ball:
Wait’ll you see what I’m knitting with it!
Loki knows, but he’s not telling. He has a priority nap he has to take!
