Clover and Almond Cardigan



Here is the front of my Clover and Almond Cardigan. I got the pattern from a vintage McCall's magazine, I'm almost certain. I scribbled it down on paper, because I don't like to handle my vintage magazines more than I have to. I have changed it a little, and I'm going to make the sleeves a tad narrower than the pattern says. I find that the vintage sweaters seem a bit over-ample, or blousy, and I want it to be a little more form fitting. It's a great two-toned pattern, though. I'm already loving this piece.

Oh how pretty. I really like that pattern. The more I follow your knitting projects, the more I miss it. Sigh. Maybe I'll try again. And just ignore the pain. And the cramping. You wouldn't happen to have a spare, useable right wrist, would you?

Do you block your own sweaters?

I think this is my dream sweater. Even its title! Clover and Almond? How satisfying is that?
