I'm making great progress on the design and knitting for the Paul & Joe inspired cardigan I have previously mentioned. I'm making up this pattern as I go, but the overall idea was inspired by some designer sweaters, including (but not limited to) a lovely Paul & Joe number. It seems there were several sweaters with similar yokes on the market last season. It makes me feel like slightly less of a copycat, or maybe I should feel like more of one.
I'm using yarn that I recycled from a thrift store sweater. The original sweater was a couple sizes bigger, and had long sleeves and pockets. I decided to take a gamble and use the yarn double stranded for this knit--and I won't know if I have enough yarn until the end! I'm still somewhat hopeful, but whatever happens, I think it's going to be very close.
If this all works out I'll post a pseudo-pattern. I'm not going to bother with a proper pattern, with sizes and all since I didn't bother with proper yarn (and as a result had to buy US Size 10.75 needles! Didn't know they made those). Hopefully I can provide enough details that it would be easy for someone to follow and adjust for their yarn and size. Stay tuned--this is knitting up very quickly.
