February Lady – Cardi knitted top down

And, yes, it was finished in February! (albeit two years later…)

Knitted cardi - top down lace pattern

I used the unravelled wool from a previous project – the shortlived Phildar’s Swing Jacket – and think it was a good choice. I made the smallest size as had been warned of the pattern’s wont to stretch, but Rowan’s Yorkshire Tweed Aran is pretty springy, so it holds its shape well and doesn’t drag down too much with the weight of the finished garment.

February lady - laid out

February lady – desaturated; the colour was way out, but wanted to show its unworn shape anyhow…
