My mother asked for an afghan. A big throw in red with a big white ‘A’ in the middle, with Knit Picks’ Crayon. Hmmmm.
And yet, somehow I ended up with a Slouchy Cardigan. Trust me, Mom, this is way better and you already have two four three billion Alabama throws, sweaters, and key chains. I’ll be shipping it out this week, just try it on and walk around the house in it for a while, you’ll see. A handknit cardigan is way better than another throw (like that quilt I made you three years ago that’s still sitting in the spare room’s closet…).
Pattern: Slouchy Cardigan by Helene Roux from Greetings from Knit Cafe
Yarn: Knit Picks’ Crayon in Red (very, very red)
Needles: US 8
Make sure you check the errata for this pattern, but even with the corrections, you’ll have to force the sleeve caps into the armholes. Even so, the finished project is well worth the effort, very cozy.
