Another FO – Minimalist Cardigan!

with 3 comments

I guess I’m serious about this finishing streak. A year ago, I started knitting the Minimalist Cardigan from the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits. You can see the early stages of it here and here. About 2 inches into the last piece (a sleeve), I had a minor mess up – but set it down instead of fixing it. And there it sat for until about a month ago when I ripped out the sleeve and started again. Days later, all the pieces were done and blocking.

Completed Minimalist Cardigan

I blocked the pieces before sewing them together – wow, what a difference! It was so easy to finish… all the parts just fit together. The fit is perfect and it has wonderful drape (thanks to the bamboo!).

Yarn: Briar Rose Celebration (50% Merino, 50% Bamboo)
Pattern: Minimalist Cardigan (in Ravelry)
Needles: Size 7 US (Denise Interchangeable)
Mods: None! Unless you count the variegated yarn.

This is my favorite sweater so far! By the way, did you notice I’m wearing the same tank top as the model in the magazine? Unfortunately, I didn’t have a belt that fit around my chest to finish of the look. (scroll down on this page to see the original)
