How many of these cardigans does one person need in her wardrobe, you might ask? The answer appears to be: at least three. What can I say? This design is perfect for my climate, where often all you need is a little something of any extra layer. I can wear it with so many things.
This version rose from the ashes of my poor, doomed Cloudette sweater (R.I.P.). Yes, maybe knitting a third Featherweight was a safe (some would say too obvious) choice, but whatever! The sheer/ seamless cardigan formula works great with the rest of my wardrobe and has yet to fail me, so why not?
I'm kind of in love with this shade of green. It's a little more jewel-tone than my usual beloved olives and limes, but this rich emerald-ish color is really working for me. Nice for fall.
Also, it's hard to go wrong with a 50/50 silk/wool blend for keeping the chill off and feeling delicious at the same time.
