Sienna Cardigan

Pattern: Sienna Cardigan from Interweave Knits, Fall 2006
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted (5.5 skeins)
Color: Emerald (135)
Needles: Bamboo Circulars, Size 7
Variations: I changed the rolled cuffs to ribbed. To compensate for my different row gauge, I added an extra 3/4 repeat of the lace along the button band.

I love this yarn. I did a trial run of how my skin would react to it by making a hat first. It is the only wool that I have been able to wear directly against my skin without freaking out. It is so soft and the colors kept me happy the whole time I was knitting it. This is the first fitted sweater that I have made and I am so glad that it turned out. I have been known to have gauge issues so it is quite rewarding when all of the swatching, washing and calculating pays off!
