Hurrah! My Catbells Cardigan is done done done!
Pattern: Catbells Cardiagn by Megan Nodecker (Rav Link)
Yarn: Briggs and Little Regal 2-ply in Midnight Blue
Needles: US 8 and US 6
Mods: I added 2 inches of length to the body and modified the sleeve decreases to accommodate my strong upper arms.
This sweater was a labor of love and took way longer to make than it should have. I also made several mistakes in the lace that I just fudged back into place because NO ONE will ever notice, lol. This sweater crushed some major stash. I used almost 6 skeins of yarn that equates to 1,500 yards of yarn out of stash!
The finished sweater is super cozy and VERY warm. Briggs and Little Regal is not a next to skin soft yarn but should compensate by being hard wearing, especially on the bottom where I will sit on it. This pattern was well designed and gets high marks from me but I don’t think I would make it again. The all over patterning is just slow knitting for me and probably why it took over a year to finish.
It is starting to get cooler around here so I feel like this garment will come in very handy! Happy Knitting!!
