Pattern: B-Side cardigan by Laura Chau
Yarn: Sublime Angora Merino
Needle: 3.5mm Knitpicks Harmony
Mods: Worked a larger size at a guage of 25 sts instead of 24 (as specified in the pattern) and knitted sleeves from the top-down (vaguely outlined in this post).
I worked the fluffy yarn at a tighter than reccomended guage to try to control the fluff factor and prevent it pilling too badly. I’m not entirely sure how successful this is going to be. This yarn doesn’t just have a halo – it’s more like an aura.
I’d only worn this for a couple of hours on Saturday night before taking these photos yesterday morning and you can see it’s starting to pill slightly already.
Despite that I’m incredibly happy with the finished item. It fits almost perfectly and I love the collar.
It kept me lovely and warm on the station platform while I waited for my train this morning!
