Pattern: Garter Yoke Cardigan by Melissa LaBarre from Knit 1 Fall/Winter 08
Yarn: Cascade 220 in shade #9326 Colonial Blue heather
Needles: Knitpicks/Knitpro harmony interchangeables 5.0 mm
Mods: Knit as per 36″ then I did additional decreases to give waist stitch count for 34″ size, then followed the pattern for that size. Picked up 5 additional stitches on each underarm when starting sleeve (I have had gappiness there on previous raglans), then decreased in 4 pairs over 6″ to remove these stitches and make the upper arm fit snugly.
I loved every minute of knitting this cardigan. It went really quickly because of the thickness of the yarn (worsted) and I loved knitting with cascade 220. I’ve been trying out taking the train to work for the last couple of weeks – it takes longer, but I get plenty of knitting time, and a lot of this cardi was done on the train.
I think I will wear this lots in the cooler months.
