I pulled together a customized pattern to showcase these gorgeous yarns – it incorporates some pieces of Albini Cardigan and some of the color scheme of BlueSand Cardigan. The yarn is a merino, silk and yak blend, and you cannot believe how silky soft it feels! And, I love how it takes color . . . because it’s so soft, I think it’s likely going to pill, but I’m okay with that The merino helps give it some structure, but it still has a great deal of drape, so I wanted a project that wasn’t likely to stretch out of shape or try to show off a lot of texture.
This cardigan differs from most that I’ve been knitting lately — closer fitting, not overly long or oversized. I like the close fit and the fact that the crewneck means I don’t have to wear anything under it.
