Berry Lace Cardi - Finished!

berrylacecardidone1


All done! Here it is in the pose made famous by knit bloggers everywhere - the bathroom mirror self portrait! (Sorry about the blurry.) I love this little cardi and I know that it's going to be perfect for the transition seasons of Spring and Fall, just the thing to toss on when it's a little chilly for short sleeves, but you don't really need too much to stay comfortable. The pattern is actually written for cotton yarn, which would take you into Summer's over air-conditioned spaces, but I think I'll get more wear out of it in the wool.

Details: Free Pattern from Drops, worked in Cascade 200 (I can't find a ball band to get an exact color number, but it's a regular Cascade 220 color, not a Heather or a Superwash). I did the small size and the only changes I made to the pattern are to change the bobbles to knots (which I gave directions for in one of the previous posts), change the sleeve cap shaping to short rows instead of bind offs, and skip the crochet edging completely.

I love it! I like your version much better than the original...I need to learn how to better picture how projects would look in different yarns and modifications. Thanks for the ideas!
