Woodstove Season

green3

 

Another finished cardigan – and a lovely one at that. This wasn’t the easiest pattern to follow at times, but thankfully I had my sister knitting along/ahead of me to bounce ideas off of. We decided to modify this pattern a bit, especially through the body where we did less decreases; and after we added those stitches back at the hips, we incorporated the chevron pattern instead of plain stockinette. I love the way it turned out, but I wish it would get cold enough in Florida to wear! All this week it has been at least 80 degrees – there is something so wrong about having to run your air conditioner in December. Thanks for reading! 🙂
