First knit for autumn

I’ve been in love with the Aidez pattern since I saw it over a year ago. I would’ve made it, except that the amount of yarn it takes would have cost a lot. Then I found some Cascade Eco online and since it only takes 2 skeins I took the plunge. As you can see they’re pretty chunky!

I decided to make the whole thing as seamless as possible, so trawled through Ravelry and read the advice on there. Even though this has cables it’s been very fast to get through. The only problem is row 13 on the main cable chart which should read hold to the back, not the front if you want a real lattice pattern, but that’s noted on the errata.

I’m hoping the raglan sleeve decreases go well. I’m making a size 36 but haven’t taken out the side selvedge stitches, so should end up with a 37″ ish size. I’m also making the sleeves a few sizes larger because lots of people said they came up small for them. I should have the cardigan finished over the next week or so. Now I’ve just got to figure out what I need to sew for autumn/winter.
