After a few disappointments considering sweater and cardigan knits, I decided to take a different road regarding my fall knitting. First of all, it needed to be something that I would really wear and that would fit me. Since I'm not that
good patient in gauge swatching - I do check my gauge, I just give up really easy when I do not obtain it and then I don't really make an effort anymore and just start knitting, hoping that it'll probably work itself out, ahem - so, since I'm not fanatically wild about this necessary evil part of knitting fitting garments, I wanted something that would fall loose, required no picking up stitches for a buttonband and it had to be a bit of a quick project too.
SoI started browsing my 600+ favourites on Ravelry, another 600 favourites of many inspiring Ravelers's favourite cardigans and I was becoming a little too fixated on knitting Pinterest boards. In the end I went with my first choice :-): the beccs Cardigan by Isabell Kraemer.
It's such a genius pattern and so easy! The aran weight yarn I used (Drops Nepal in a gray mix color) was so soft and it feels really comfy. It's a joy to knit with I think.
I'm really happy with it. Along with my Owls sweater I knit in 2013, this is actually something that I will wear in the colder months.
