Pattern: Lilac, by Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Rowan Cotton 4-ply, in aubergine (fingering weight, 100% cotton). Used about 4.5 skeins.
Needle: US size 1
Size: xsmall (32 bust…for reference, my bust measures about 32 inches, but I actually ended up with a good amount of negative ease, almost to the point where it’s tricky to button. The stitch pattern is somewhat stretchy, and I usually wear cardis unbuttoned anyway so the negative ease here isn’t that important to me.)
Mods: The main stitch pattern as written was created with a p2tog and YO stitch…I hate p2tog, so I changed them all t0 k2tog. To my eye, they look very similar, and I was able to knit the sweater much faster that way.
Notes: I really like this cardigan. It’s a little more cropped than I thought it would be, but it’s a cute little cotton sweater that will be nice for fall in the Southeast, when it’s still pretty warm-ish.
If only all my finished objects had such a backdrop…sigh.
