FO: Minimalist Cardigan

Pattern:Minimalist Cardigan, Interweave Knits Fall 07

Yarn: Valley Yarns Colrain in Chestnut

Needles: US 5

Notes: This sweater is really easy to knit (if you don’t mind moss stitch that is…)  I enjoyed working with Colrain again (one of my favorites!) and the result is an easy going sweater that isn’t quite like anything else in my closet.

Either the biasing didn’t quite block out or I knit one front longer than the other.  Either way, I think it works with the sweater and isn’t a problem.  I kind of like assymetry anyway.

It was a quick knit, and I would recommend the pattern – just be aware that it does bias, and block before seaming.  If you use colrain, please remember that it does stretch.  I knit a 30″ back to get 32″ after blocking.

Overall I am pleased (especially with the color!)
