Capsule Wardrobe: Knit 1

Pattern Description:
Worked in a soft and creamy worsted weight wool, this seamless cardigan combines a variety of twisted rib stitch work that emanates radially along the cone-shaped sleeves. With a plain stockinette back and ribbed sleeves and band, this cardigan is a surprisingly quick and easy knit.

Fibre Used:
100% wool



Modification Advice/Errors in Pattern:
I couldn't find any mods or errata.

Alterations Done:
This is something of a Fraken-shrug. I used about four different yarns, all (almost) exactly the same colour and weight.

Would I Knit This Again?:
Absolutely! But next time, I'll make sure I have enough yarn. There wasn't really any simple way I could see to cut corners and save yardage.

My Favourite Things About it:
It's really simple to knit. Once you get to those sleeves, it's sets of rows that are the same thing, so it's great mindless knitting.

My Least Favourite Things About it:
I mean, this isn't the fault of the pattern, but wow, is it ever a yarn-eater!
