As previously mentioned I have 2 cardigans on my list of upcoming planned projects.
After successfully casting on and knitting several inches on Emily’s Favourite Socks in the Magic Loop technique I decided it was time to put it aside as a ‘travel knit’ project. Which means it will come with me to K’s mom’s house whenever we visit since that is pretty much the only other place I travel to besides work.
In honor of spring I wanted to cast on something bright (which most of what I wear is NOT). So the vintage pattern “Cardigan Sweater no. 479” which I am hereby renaming ‘T Shell Cardigan‘ was the obvious choice. I have a vintage style dress that I wear to work that is a black and white print and wanted a vintage style sweater to go with it. And I chose a bright spring green for a nice pop to the outfit. It will be interesting to see how an actual vintage pattern varies from a modern pattern. I guess I am going to find out because I am getting ready to cast this on (two cast ons in one day!) and had to do some research on vintage sizes. I came across this great article that answered all my questions and thought I’d share. Size 12 it is!
