I’d been saving up all summer for a new dress, and it finally arrived on Monday.
Since our office has the temperature of a meat locker (and since Winter Is Coming, John Snow), I decided to knit a cardigan to go with it. I opted for Miette, a cardigan designed by Andi Satterlund, since it was simple enough, it was a top-down raglan (easiest sweater in the world to knit), and the pattern was free. Plus, I like Andi’s patterns. Some people are stans for celebrities; apparently I am a stan for knitwear designers.
I knit this from Spud & Chloe Sweater in (I believe) Lake. I used yarn that I recycled from my ill-fated attempt to make the Rayleigh Tee from Knitscene.
In working on this, I learned that I vastly prefer working lace with charts. Whenever I have to include lace in something with written instructions, it takes me a few tries to get the lace to work right.
On the bright side, the sweater fits me, and I learned another way to make a boob vent. Way to go, me.
This should be done in time for next week’s FO Friday. Since it’s knit from heavy worsted and starting to get huge, I may put this aside for subway knitting and make this my at-home project. We’ll see.
