I'm as happy with this one as I am with my first one. I made one change. The pattern says that the hood is optional. Good. I opted out. I decided I was pretty much ready to be finished with it, and would love to have some extra charmed to make a pair of toast mitts.
Pattern: Slouchy Cardigan, Greetings from Knit Cafe (I see it is currently out of stock at Amazon. Hurry, call your library!)
Yarn: Classic Elite Charmed (Discontinued. Sorry.)
Needles: US 8
Mods: No hood. Two rows of rib.
***Remember to check out the pattern corrections if you have a copy of the original hardcover book. Also, the sleeve cap is too short. I have not seen any corrections written anywhere for this, so, I'll let you know what I did:
Shape Cap: (RS) BO 3 sts at beginning of next 2 rows, 2 sts at beginning of next 4 rows, then at each side decrease 1 st every other RIGHT SIDE row. (so, every 4th row) 10 times. 21(28) sts remain. Bind of remaining stitches.
This is hands down my favorite sweater, EVER. Wear, wear, wear, I tell you. I honestly do not own another hand knit that has gotten more wear than my first one. I have no doubt this will be the same.
Have a beautiful weekend!
