Well lookie, lookie! I got me a Tangled Yoke Cardigan. (That muffled noise you hear in the distance is Erin shouting, "Oh thank goodness! She still knits!")
I love this cardigan. It is just lovely, like something you would pick up at Anthropologie. I think I prefer wearing it open, like above. But I can also button it up if the occasion calls for it (i.e. I spill salsa on my shirt).
This is one of those knits that you really have to push through to finish. Each stage is an exercise in persistence, from the ribbing to the stockinette stitch to the cabling (well, the cabling was fun, but when there are over 400 stitches per row it can be a little much). But in the end, you have a very wearable knit that requires no seaming. Oh, the genius that is the great Eunny.
So here are the stats...
Pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan by Eunny Jang
Source: Interweave Knits, Fall 2007
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed, in Melody
Made for: Moi
Size Made: 38" bust
Needle Size: US 5, 4 and 2 circulars
Date Started: August 2007
Date Completed: September 3, 2008* (See note below)
Modifications: Lengthen, lengthen, lengthen. For this sweater, I just added 2 rows at every interval. For example, if the pattern said "Knit 17 rows," I would knit 19. It seemed to work ok and resulted in a sweater that is long enough for me.
Issues: Looks like there is a little puckering around the cabling...maybe I need to block it again.
Ok, Fall, I am ready for you now.
*Well, according to my Ravelry page for this knit, this cardigan has been over a year in the making. Umm...yeah. Confession time. I just didn't knit at all this year. With all my travels you would have thought that would have a been a perfect time for me to knit my little heart out. But alas, that was not the case. I think I may be a nester-knitter, meaning I knit when I feel settled. Now that I have my new place, I will be doing lots and lots of nesting. That means a resurgence of knits. Did I mention the LYS is only three blocks away?
