beginnings September 24, 2013

A recent trip to Oregon’s high desert region taught me a quick lesson: even though it’s 80+ during the day, dinner time after sunset can be a chilly surprise…

I love wearing little dresses when I go out and started digging in my stash of “sock” yarns to put together a lightweight but cozy little sweater to bridge the gap.

Chic Knits Arlin

One of my favorite dresses is a black & white polka dot number – fitted and just slightly fancy with a low v-neck & one, just one, ruffle.

It became my inspiration for this slightly lacy cardigan – in ochre yellow to replace the setting sun…

YARNS – this sweater is designed at 6sts per inch and I found a wide variety of yarns that can be knit at this gauge.

I swatched and washed to see how this sock yarn might behave and was happy happy joy joy!

It went up on the fit mannequin a few times to make sure it was behaving to measure apre-swatch.

Then:
Row 1 (& all WS Rows): P3; K2, P2 to last st, P1.

Work to desired length and BO all sts as they appear. (Remember to work a buttonhole in your neckband for a crew neck version).
