Started in the summer. Finished in the fall. Same year though!!
Pure & Simple Bulky Asymmetrical Cardigan. Knit with Naturally Chunky yarn in a dark brown colour.
The end result is not as pleasing to me as I had hoped. I loved the pattern from the 'get-go' and have had it in my queue for quite some time. But! I had forgotten how heavy, hot and plain uncomfortable a chunky weight sweater can be. Especially when compared to Featherweight which was the knit that preceded Asymmetrical. This style, with it's off-centre closure, only looks good when buttoned. Hotter that ever.
Sure I knit Chunky sweaters years ago. Most knitters of my era did. We began our sweater knitting with Patons Chunky 'Ski' Sweaters. Sadly, I had forgotten that they too were hot and heavy. Asymmetrical at least has some style.
And I do love the buttons. Those were from The Woodlot, purchased at the KW Knitters Fair.
I will give it one winter. If it is too hot and heavy for comfort, then I will take it apart for hats and mitts. Probably a much better - IMO - use of the chunky yarn. And then - maybe - re-knit Asymmetrical in a lighter yarn.
