I do admit, when it comes to knitting I am usually more drawn to the smaller stuff like socks, mittens are shawl, but once in a while I have an idea for a garment I just can't resist. Like with this beauty, included in the newest issue of Interweave Knits.
The cardi, designed as an oversized cardi with dropped shoulders for a female model, very obvious is a true unisex pattern. :) It is knitted in fishermen's rib (a brioche stitch) combined with garter stitch squares which forms an allover geometric pattern with interesting horizontal and vertical lines. The garter stitch element is picked up again for all edgings, the shawl collar and the fold up cuffs.
I really love it because it's a cardi to snuggle up in, absolutely comfy to wear and - really important for me when it comes to cardigans - it has pretty big pockets for all the small stuff that needs to be carried with you at all times.
It is knitted in a lovely wool, cashmere and silk blend, Arranmore Light by the Fibre Co., availabe in 18 beautiful shades. This one is colourway Odhran, a stunning blue with a hint of green - and you know, you can't go wrong with this kind of blue in my world. ;-)
