Wicked Cardigan


The Wicked Cardigan is off the needles folded neatly on my dresser waiting for cooler days for me to wear.  I am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I was concerned about the Madelinetosh tosh merino light for my choice in wool, mainly because it's a single ply.  However I love the slight halo the sweater has, hinting at it's coziness.



I have knit up this pattern before and I confess I would knit a third sweater as well.  Same same but different is an excellent pattern, well written but is for a knitter who is familiar with sweater construction and top down construction.  I love how there's detail to the shaping of the body and the ruching at the shoulders.


My modifications were few, I made the buttonholes 2 1/2 inches apart so there would be less of a gap when buttoned up.  I also added length in the body and sleeves since I am tallish.

  5. Oh, Karen - it's gorgeous! I love the colorway. I've seen that pattern around a bit (here a couple of times, I think!) and I keep wanting to try it. (I'm losing a ton of weight training for this half marathon & I don't want to knit anything new until I know what size I'm going to be!) xo

  7. I love everything about it: the shoulder ruching, the shaping, the simple stockinette, the color and yarn choice--it's a wicked sweater! (In Boston, 'wicked' means really, really good.) ♥

  9. Aw, how beautiful! I am impressed with the shaping and ruching--I am pretty sure that is beyond my skill level! And, funnily enough, I had forgotten the name of this cardigan, and, when I saw the title, I thought it had perhaps misbehaved during the blocking process!

  19. Hi, I really love this caridgan. I found it searching for a pattern for my yarn. But i cannot find the pattern, I would like to download it, but if I follow the link on Ravelry, I end up on a webshop with yarn, and also patterns, but cannot find this specific one.
    Can you help me?
    kind regards,
