Three and One

Already posted on Ravelry and my blog, but I thought I'd share it here, too:



This is the Three and One cardigan, with waist shaping added by switching down a needle size and working a portion of single-strand rib, and with a big old shawl collar that I improvised. It's in Cascade Eco-Wool (the base oatmeal color) and four colors of Cascade Rustic wool/linen. Very warm!

Here's the front... you'll have to forgive that I sewed all the buttons half an inch too low. (I fixed them before I mailed it off to my mother.)



I wouldn't say I loved knitting this (I blame the Aran/bulky wool and a near-disaster in steeking the sleeve openings), but the design is great!

  • Beautiful! I had never given this pattern a second glance but with the colors, detail and shaping you have added I am very tempted to make it myself.
