I finally finished my February lady sweater last Friday night after knitting furiously until 1 am. (Ok, so I guess that really makes it early Saturday morning…) After an overnight block I wore it on Saturday. It was so super warm and comfy, I have a feeling this might be my go-to cardigan for the rest of the winter. The yarn is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes worsted weight in the Tidepool Heather colorway.
After a lot of trial and error I made the 3/4 bell sleeves from the pattern into fitted long sleeves. This took some planning – I actually made a mid-project swatch which is unheard of for me! I eliminated 3 repeats of the lace pattern below the elbow – closeup it looks like this:
I was pretty happy with the result. All of the gritty details of how I did this are on my ravelry page.
