I’ve loved this sweater the moment the pattern was published, back in 2009. I purchased many sweater quantities of yarn with this sweater in mind. But for some reason, I haven’t knit this sweater, until now.
I finished this sweater a few weeks ago, but it wasn’t until this weekend that I finally replaced the initial set of buttons I had on this sweater.
The sweater is Audrey in Unst by Gudrun Johnston, published in Twist Collective in Fall 2009. It is a very popular pattern, with more than 1,000 projects posted in Ravelry.
I made only a few modifications to this cardigan.
- Cast on the ribbing using a tubular cast on (and here’a link to my favorite instructions by Ysolda Teague);
- Cast off the sleeves using a matching tubular cast off (and link to TechKnitter’s instructions)
- Lengthened the body by 1.5″
Very minor for me. I used indigo dyed yarn, A Verb For Keeping Warm’s Annapurna. I love the little speckles of white, and I love how this makes this cardi look like a little jean jacket.
I think I need this sweater in a multitude of colors! (I think pale dove grey next.)
