I recently finished this lovely, lovely cardigan, and I just had to show it off.
Cardigan – handknit by me
Long Sleeve – Apt 9 (via Kohls)
Jeans – Express
Bangle – thrifted
Shawl pin: Nicholas & Felice
I love the fact that this cardigan can be dressed up with a shawl pin or brooch, or dressed down, like in this picture.
The pattern is the Minimalist Cardigan from Interweave Knits Fall 2007. I changed a lot of details though. I hate seams in my handknits, as well as set-in sleeves, so I knit the body and sleeves seamless, then attached the sleeves via Elizabeth Zimmermann’s seamless raglan. The result is a cardigan that I absolutely love! The yarn is RYC Cashsoft Aran, which is a delicious blend of cashmere, merino and microfiber. This is one handknit that will get lots of use!
