Spring Jacket

I found some old Lopi and this pattern in a bin I had forgotten about for over l2 years. It was a fun and fast knit. I especially like the collar on this one. I hope it will be useful for spring and fall walks.

Such a beautiful sweater! I absolutely love cardigans. I seriously need to delve into some stranded work--inspiring.

Nice stranded work. I particularly like the pattern in the button band and shawl.

Nice. Very nice. A friend

Nice. Very nice. A friend wants me to help her through a cardigan so I'm paying close attention to what you fellows are doing with them. (I normally do pullovers.) Should be a learning experience for both of us. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I have to agree with Albert that the Earth TOnes are magnificient . I am more and more inclined to like Cardigans a lot, if you get hot you can cool down easily! The specs are great because they give us tools we can use when we tackle such a project, thanks for sharing.

Magnificent! The eath tones

Magnificent! The eath tones are muted and yet dramatic at the same time, outlined by the black. The judicious use of the white makes the whole sweater come alive. The collar puts the stamp of uniqueness on this sweater. As always, you've done incredible work! How about some specs: needle size, sts per inch?

Thanks, Albert. I used a 6

Thanks, Albert. I used a 6 mm needle and got 4 stitches to the inch. This sweater is on the back of a Lopi book and I actually saw one for sale here in Canada. I knit the sweater in the round and cut it. The button band and collar where held on a piece of string until it was cut then knitted up and sewn on. Stitches were gradually added to the band and a bunch cast off and then cast on again for the collar. The collar was grafted at the back.
