I needed something new to knit (not like I don’t have piles of semi-knitted project already…but whatever) so I finally cast on for a project I’ve been thinking about for a long time.
A simple, plain, cardigan, out of cashmere.
Handmaiden 4ply cashmere, to be exact! In a lovely natural taupey colour (it’s greyish, right ken?). And because it’s ever so captivating, I started this yesterday and am already done the yoke. Two hours of knitting during the Grey’s Anatomy finale helped!
I used Jody’s yoke from her Unwrapped sweater, and it looks great. There was a bit of pulling in the shoulder increases because of the increases right next to each other (and every row), but it’s only at the very top of the raglan.
I do wish I’d modified the neckline for more of a true angled V rather than a rounded sweetheart neckline – the sudden increases every row make the line a little puckery. I’m sure it’ll work out though.
And check out that cashmere halo!
