My friend Jasmyn (Knitter with a Point) made this lovely cardigan earlier this year and, since I’m trying to use up the never-ending-yarn, I made one too. The pattern is Abalone and it is free on Ravlery, which is great, since it’s a gorgeous little cardigan. It’ll be perfect for wearing when it’s warm out like right now. (Really, who am I kidding… it’s way hotter than warm. I was in Toronto yesterday and it was 37 with a humidex of god knows what. I just about melted.)
I used Mill Ends (both colours) and I alternated 2 rows of blue and 8 rows of beige. Otherwise, I knit the pattern as written in the size given.
I love how it turned out, but next time there are a few things I might change (and I might be making this again soon… I’ve had some requests!). I would use kfb instead of m1 for the bottom increases as I found it really difficult to do a m1 on top of a m1 and I would also pick up more stitches (and therefore not slip the stitches) at the bottom- as it is, it looks a bit gathered.
