Alternate Sweater Path

I have for years coveted the Breezy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. To me it represents easy classic effortless style. But it is also MILES of stockinette in fingering weight yarn. My size could easily consume 1,900 to 2,000 yards of yarn. There is no way I could manage that with two small kids without losing my mind and hating how long it took. Well I was at Sams Club shopping for toilet paper….(seriously potty training a boy shouldn’t consume this much paper but I’m just glad he’s finally catching on)…and I see these cardigans on an end cap.

I snatched one up and realized its a commercial version of the Breezy! It’s a very fine gauge Rayon, Polyester and Spandex fabric. But it’s butter soft the touch and the spandex makes it hug all the right places without being unflattering to a new mom.

And it’s got the huge drapey fronts! They wrap so nicely around my big kiddo and make a decent nursing cover up for PB. I was in LOVE and they were under $15…

I still want to knit a Breezy someday but it’s reassuring to know for the mean time I have these pieces to keep me warm while my children still want to snuggle. (And a good plus, it looks kick ass on me).

Happy Knitting!!

  1. I love those type of drapey sweaters and have several myself. Though being able to buy them so cheaply makes it hard to justify buying the wool needed to make one myself to my husband.

  2. I want to knit something similar to but I hate knitting cardigans! It’s the miles of purling that gets to be. I would have bought at least one too.
