FO: Thesally Cardigan from Pom Pom Magazine
I have already documented my issues concerning yardage for this cardigan.
If you want to knit it full-sized, and have 200m skeins of yarn, you will need an extra skein (for size 2). Do the maths if you are making a larger size.
I did not have an extra skein.
So I have shorter sleeves and a cropped body.
And it is a bit narrower than I had hoped too.
I had perhaps 3 metres of yarn left out of 600m.
Which is fine for a spring / summer cardigan.
And it is undeniably pretty.
Pattern: Thesally Cardigan by Hanna Maciejewska from Pom Pom Magazine, Autumn 2016
Yarn: Merino DK from Gregoria Fibers, 200 metres per 100g skein.
This is an 8-ply, hard twist yarn, rather like Wollmeise Pure.
It is speckle-dyed using plant materials and looks beautiful.
It is not to be confused with the yarn used by the designer, which is a single-ply soft yarn, with 250 metres to the 100g skein, from the same dyer.
It is a lovely garment.
I am just a bit deflated because it is not the big, swingy, snuggly garment I was expecting.
I thought I was knitting an autumn / winter cardigan.
