NEW PATTERN / Twiggy Cardigan


The Twiggy Cardigan has been off the needles for quite some time. It was a super fast knit, I think it took me three days to complete, wow!


It took me a while to release this pattern because I struggled a little with the fact that the yarn I had used is now discontinued.


At first I thought I would hunt for a replacement. I struck out big time, I guess super chunky yarn is a seasonal item in yarn shops, so I ended up at Micheals. I walked away with a sweaters worth of Loops & Threads which was super soft and fun to knit with but I didn't feel solid about making the switch.


So this is what I've decided, rather than sit on the design and hunt for the perfect yarn to go with it, I'll leave it open. Most people substitute yarns anyway, using what is available to them. Maybe you have more options to choose from than I do... Maybe you have a heap of super chunky yarn in your stash :) What ever the case it just felt right to stick with my original sample and leave the yarn choice up to you.


It's a fun knit and provides an excellent base for modifications and the end result is so comfy to wear. I hope you enjoy this knit as much as I did!
