Forest Cardigan

Forest cardigan Argo

This is a sweater that almost didn’t became completed. I had a lot of doubts on the way, but here it is already well used. The pattern is Argo by Svetlana Volkova and I knitted it a size up to give it a loose fit hoping that it will allow a thiner cardigan underneath on cold days. The yarn I used is Shilasdair Luxury DK w/Camel paired with Navia Uno 1150 meters of each, the Shilasdair yarn was a bit more variated then I expected when I bought it online but paired up with a solid Shetland wool it evened out to a nice green. I really like a slight variation in the colour but not more that that and this is right at the edge of what I like. The angora content together with the wool makes it warm and still light. I thing that the weight can be an issue with warn hand knits or sweaters in general that in order to stay warm you end up wearing 1 kg of sweater, that is adding bulk and stretching out, not very comfortable but at least you’re warm. I’m hoping to make another angora sweater soon so that I have another warm and lights sweater, but I don’t think that will happen in time for this winter, since I’m mostly thinking about my summer wardrobe at the moment.
