Featherweight

October 03, 2011 2 Comments

  Pattern: Featherweight from Hannah Fettig (Knitbot.com) This is a quick knit and I always love top down knitting so you don't have to sew the sleeves in after the fact. Something about finishing a garment and sewing the sleeves in that equals procrastination for me. I think it's a great pattern especially if you're a beginner knitter. It's great grab & go cardi especially for this time of year when you need something light to throw on.  I added some length to the body so that it would hit at the top of my pants. I also added some length to the ribbing on the bottom and sleeves. I do have a few regrets with this knit unfortunately.  I went down a size 5 to correct my gauge but in hindsight wish I had stuck with the size 6. The sleeves ended up a bit tight and I would have preferred it a little more loose.  I grabbed this yarn from a local wool festival and it's 100% wool which leaves it a little scratchy. Tight sleeves and slightly scratchy yarn usually means it's not the first cardigan I grab from my closet. My Ravelry Project
