A New Cardigan!

Letho cardigan

I've started a new cardigan and this one is unlike any cardigan I've knit before!  The pattern is Letho and not only is it knit sideways (each half from the cuff to center back and then joined) it's got a lot of other things going on too.  It has brioche and welts and some simple stranded colorwork and mosaic.  All in one sweater!

So far I've started the first sleeve but you can see the brioche on the cuffs (this is my first time working single color brioche) and just above the cuffs are the welts and the simple colorwork sections.  My main color is Squoosh Ultra Worsted in Event Horizon and I'm using Malabrigo Rios in Lettuce and Gris for the contrast colors.  The Lettuce is just used in the welting and the Gris is the colorwork and will be the mosaic later.  The funny thing is I had bought both colors of the Malabrigo for suckers on Levi's tentacles - the Lettuce was the first color I bought but I was afraid it would overwhelm the whole octopus and all you'd see would be tentacles so I ordered the Gris and that's what I used instead.  Now they're being used together in the same cardigan.

The construction and all the different knitting techniques make this an interesting knit, but since the majority of it is solid stockinette, it's not overwhelmingly complex.  I did do a gauge swatch and will be keeping an eye on that as I knit because that seems even more important than usual since I'm working the whole cardigan sideways.

Have a great weekend!
