One interesting thing about this sweater is that it is neither a round yoke nor a raglan - it's both. After knitting the yoke in the round and working a set of short rows, you then transition to raglan decreases as you approach the underarm. An interesting technique.
I definitely missed my Christmas deadline this year, but hopefully I'll be able to wear this cutie next year. I'm hightailing it now hoping to finish the Cardinal before the start of the Knitting at Large Knit Picks KAL January 5.
Now's the time to get ready. Have you picked out your Knit Picks plus-size pattern and/or yarn for this big event? I've finally decided that I am going to make GlennaC's beautiful new cabled pullover, Ravine.
I'm using the luxurious Knit Picks Capra, a DK/worsted cashmere/merino blend in Celestial. I worked on the swatch the other night. Isn't this gorgeous? It's so soft, I keep petting it! Plus the stitch definition is crisp - just look at those cables. I can't wait to make this sweater.
