In a Pickle cardigan

This is an incredibly decadent cardigan!  Knit double-stranded from two beautiful Plucky Knitter yarns:  worsted-weight Scholar 2.0 (75% merino / 25% cashmere) and sport-weight Cashmere (100% cashmere).

I used 3 1/2 skeins (280 yds/ea) of the Cashmere in color Peninsula, and either 4 or 5 skeins (250 yds/ea) of Scholar 2.0 in color In a Pickle (I didn’t do a very good job of tracking how many skeins I started out with!)

The pattern is Warm Sheep – I knit size 40″ (and that definitely gave me 2-3″ of positive ease) on US 7s, 8s, and 9s.

The buttons are beautiful, hand-carved from some kind of a nut (so I’m told), purchased at Button Emporium.
