When I started to work at Fancy Tiger over a year ago I was an experienced seamstress, but I knew I needed to jump on the knitting bandwagon. I had mastered my knits and purls with many scarves and cowls, but hadn't successfully completed a written pattern until becoming a Tigress. Feeling inspired by our lovely customers and my co-workers, I picked up some yarn and needles and haven't looked back!
This is just my second knit sweater and I couldn't be happier with the end product. It's the Miette Cardigan by Andi Satterlund. This is a really easy pattern to follow and would be a great project for beginners looking to take the next step to garments. What's more is it's free so you can save your monies for more yarn!
I knit this up in just under a month with the Quince & Co. Owl yarn in the color Rosebay. Owl is an over-dyed alpaca/wool blend that is really delightful to work with. I'm so happy with how this color shows off the lace detailing!
The pattern is written as a cute cropped cardigan, but I wanted it a bit longer so I repeated the lace repeat 3 times and added a bit of waist shaping. Now it's the perfect addition to my wardrobe!
Watch out, world! I think I'm a knitter.
