Enchanted Forest

Update on Feb. 8 2010 - This pattern will be available for online purchase in early March 2010. The pattern will be revised for better fitting, various collar options, and better grading. Also it will be re-edited for easier understanding.
If you want to get notified when it’s available, please send me a message or leave under the comment section. Thank you!

It's been a while since I posted anything here.
I've been quite busy starting up a store on Etsy (stitchlogue.etsy.com), and this Forest cardi is the first sample for the store. (also for myself)

I edited the pattern here and there for a better fit and better finishing.
Also this time, I made the collar detachable, and added a sting with pompoms at the end.

The bulkiness makes it very warm even though it’s a cropped cardigan with short sleeves. If I make matching arm warmers, it will be good to go until very late November. :D

Since the yarn is very elastic, I used 8 and 9mm needles this time to make it tighter. I’m very satisfied with the result.
