This sweater is on Raverly (follow me!) by Vanessa Smith called Twylem. The cool thing about this pattern is that it comes with two options: reverse stockinette and classic stockinette.I fell in love with the front cabling and lack of buttons on this cardigan. This is the same red worsted weight yarn that I used for the first version of the Agatha cardigan (see post). The yarn sure is weighty! I used about 7 balls of yarn for this sweater. The collar lining alone took one ball.
By the time I got to the waist and counted my stitches, I realized I was something like 15 or 20 short. I added a bunch of stitches in a couple rows and you can kind of see that right before the ribbing starts.
After I sewed the collar pieces together at the back, I noticed that I stitched the seam on the outside! It’s all good though, because most of the time, the collar is flipped down and all you can see is the lining ribbing.
I thought the sleeves would have stretched out more when I blocked but they still looked awkwardly short so I just rolled them up once. I usually tend to roll my sleeves up to 3/4 length anyways.
Gotta be prepared! 🙂
