I'd picked up the yarn a good while ago on sale - 50% off, yay! I couldn't choose between 2 very similar colourways that were available and so bought them both. A little decadent, yes. Since I didn't have enough of either colour for this big ole coat, I chopped and changed between the 2. I think it works ok, akthough there are areas where there seems to be too much of one type of colourway - in hindsight I should have changed it up a bit more. Hey ho, hindsight is 20/20.
The details for the Cardi:
- Pattern: Wildfell by Jane Ellison from 'Noro Simply'
- Yarn: Noro Kochoran in 44C and 47C - approx 8 and a half skeins used
- Size: small - athough if I were to do again, I might make extra small. I don't think it needs to be quite this big.
- Needles: US 10
I'm loving how snuggly this cardigan is. And light too. I think it's going to see a lot of use. Especially over the next few weeks.
