Minimalist Cardigan

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!
