The past few weeks I've been focusing on a two things: reduce my yarn stash and knock out some of those projects on my to do list. I've done a few afghans (and have yet another one is on my hooks) but I did take a break from the big stuff to knock out something quick to make.
I found the pattern for the Inmost Cardigan by Linda Skuka on my Ravelry favorites and was surprised I had not made one (or ten!) of these yet. While her pattern calls for bulky yarn, I knew I had some Feza Harvest in my stash that was waiting for the perfect project. It's worsted weight but I knew it would look FABULOUS. That, plus this color of gold is hot for fall this year.
As expected, this worked up super quick. The pattern has a lot of repeats in it so it's great for zoning out while catching up on TV or listening to Audible. I used four skeins and had a bit left over.
I also liked the overall concept of this piece. You end up with a rectangle that you seam up in a couple of places to get a fabulous cardigan. Hmmm... my wheels are turning. I can see doing a freeform piece or a granny square in this. I'll definitely use this technique again.
