Sneak peek

The Featherweight Cardigan is coming along. The last two versions I made were longer, but this time I decided to go with something that hit closer to my natural waist, as intended by the pattern. I made it a total of 13″, which is not a cropped sweater for many, but I have an overachieving torso, so this is how I roll. featherweight-4So far I think my only mod is adding an additional two underarm stitches to hit between the 35″ and 38″ sizes, sleeve wise. This sweater is made out of Speck silk yarn by The Loom. It’s as light as air, which seems appropriate for a cardigan named after a feather.

Now onto the sleeves!

  1. I’m just about at the same point in my featherweight!!! (and it’s my second time around on this pattern…such a good one.) Like your green…I’m working with in-your-face-fuschia which might be a little much for this grey-loving girl. 😦

  2. Overachieving torso-LOL! 13 inches is about perfect sweater length on me, but I have an overachieving inseam to compensate🙂 Your Featherweight is coming along beautifully-the color looks amazing on you, and the yarn sounds absolutely luxurious.

What do you think?
