Another Something New
The Featherweight Cardigan to be exact. It's knit of laceweight yarn and its knit from the top down. The genius of the pattern is that you start with the same number of stitches, no matter which size you're making and you just stop increasing when you've hit your size. If you look through the projects for this pattern on Ravelry, you will see a huge number of variations on this design - mostly in the collar section, but some people have made it with fingering weight yarn or even DK weight yarn. I think (I'll know more once I've finished knitting it) this might be one of those patterns that can be used as a template to add different stitch patterns and different details to really make an endless variety of designs. I'm using some KnitPicks Shadow in Forest Heather that I've had in my stash for ages. It's pretty great for mindless stockinette because the markers remind me where to increase, making it easy to watch TV and knit.
