I've gone through some lengths to reformulate some vintage cardigan patterns to fit modern available yarns and have been really happy with the results. Now I'm taking the reformulated pattern and changing it again. This time I'm sizing it down for a woman's cardigan, reversing the buttonholes (yuck, I can never keep my lefts and rights straight as to which side gets the buttons) and adding a nice pattern, a very easy "broken rib" pattern, but I think it has a lot of visual interest and will make the sweater a little more curve-fitting for a woman. I haven't decided if I will add a shawl collar, also in pattern, or plain border band. But as you can see, I've only just cast on, so I have some time to decide.
This is a very pretty deep blue heather. You'll see it's full, jewel tone flavor once I get going.
