Tangled Yoke Cardigan

My Tangled Yoke Cardigan is finally finished:

  • Pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan by Eunny Jang (from Interweave Knits Fall 2007)
  • Yarn: I used Elsbeth Lavold's Silky Wool instead of the Rowan Felted Tweed. I love the weight and feel of this yarn, and the gauge was spot on
  • Modifications: I made the body a couple of inches longer than the pattern called for -- I prefer my sweaters to hit a bit lower than the waist. Other than that I pretty much knit as-is.

All in all I'm really happy with the end result.

...but if I were to knit it over again, I'd probably do something a little different with the neckband -- the pattern guides you to knit a neckband that you fold over to create a double thickness. I think I'd prefer to have just a single thickness neckband. (I'm toying with maybe unpicking the neckband and doing this, but for now I'm just happy to wear it and move onto a new project.)

I think it looks great! I love that color. I wonder if the double thickness at the neckband is to help it keep its shape and not be floppy??
