Just when I thought I knew everything there was to know about knitting! How foolish. It started with Featherweight. That lovely, lighter-than-air cardi that I knit with Cotton Flamme, this summer. Travellers would claim Featherweight to be the perfect companion. Tiny and light-weight, it can be rolled into a ball and stuffed into the suitcase.
Having now worn a sweater as light as Featherweight, I suddenly, after years of knitting, realize how heavy some hand knits can be. It was no wonder then, that I was drawn to Ombre Cardigan by Tanis Fiber Arts. Using even lighter, lace weight yarn than called for (Tanis lace weight has 900 metres per skein, versus my Centolavaggi with 1400m) this little sweater is light, light, light.
What a great pattern - love the colour gradations. This cardigan will be such a pleasure to wear.
Its a great pattern and yes, you are going to LOVE it in laceweight.
I too, am a convert to the lightweight cardigans. I do love a cozy, chunky one, but as an outdoor jacket. Inside, I'm all about the light cardigan!
Ha! I worry about when the day comes that that's all I crave. Because then I'll probably knit about a sweater every two years...
