FO: Vitamin D

  
This cardigan has to be at the top of my favorites for this year. I love all the little design details, such as the radial eyelet increases and the clever use of short rows to shape the front edges, which made for an interesting knitting experience. Not once did I get bored or was tempted to set the project aside. That is saying a lot, given my short attention span. The yarn is Picoboo by Frog Tree which is a cotton and bamboo blend. It is so soft and has great drape. Heidi's patterns are very well written and easy to follow. I have knitted three of her designs and have been thrilled with each one.

Check out the abundant creativity going on at FO Friday with TAMI'S AMIS.

  7. Gorgeous! I love the colour and shape looks fantastic on you. I hear that dark teal is the new black... not that I should ever claim to be any sort of expert on fashion info!

  10. That looks great. I've been tempted into knitting this garment myself. I think it will have to wait until next Spring now though as I already have enough lightweight stuff cast on for the Autumn.
