I finished my Itaka cardigan! This was a test knit for the designer and I love how it turned out! I knit the 33″ size for my sister and it fits perfectly. The yarn is a sport-weight mill end that I picked up at a tent sale last summer. The pattern calls for DK weight, but I got gauge with the sport weight… this was the only modification I made. Next time I’ll probably make it a bit shorter so that it’s cropped, although the full-length version is quite nice too.

My project on Ravelry is here and the pattern has been released here.

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along as usual.
