pop life cardigan

Friday, October 14, 2016

Shoot!  I'm so sorry the coupon code for KnitCrate is not working.  I'll be sure to let you know when it is resolved.  
It's fall break and SO nice to have Charlie home for the weekend.  
 So, this Pop Life Cardigan is one of those quick knits that I will wear over and over.
 It's one of those sweaters that I will wear in warmer temperatures.  Spring.  Summer.
 It's one of those knits that I will keep near me all summer long. I'll throw it over my jammies in the morning.  I'll throw it over a dress in the evenings.
 The cotton is dreamy.  I can't remember a time I called cotton "dreamy".  But it is.  It is soft on the hands and easy to work with.  It's just lightweight and nice.  Ya know?
The pattern is easy to follow.  And truly simple.  The right front and right back are knit in one long piece and then seamed in the center to the back of the left side. You then add the sleeves (which are short due to the dropped shoulders) and then add the ribbing around the front and neck.
Somewhere along the way, I measured the first piece wrong and knit everything else based off of those measurements.  So, mine is shorter than the pattern suggests.  Honestly, I would have loved it to be longer.  However, this doesn't stop me from loving it.  It's sort of the summer version of my beloved slouchy cardigan.

  1. Oh my goodness. I love this. It would be perfect for our endless summer. Surely we WILL have a winter, but it's coming slowly. I also need to find more knits using bigger needles/yarn. Would certainly be faster than the fingering I normally use.

  2. that looks so cozy and comfy, what a perfect throw-on-with-anything piece.
