I bought some acrylic yarn for this mens sweater. I think wool feels very nice and luxurious, but it is a little fussy when it comes to washing. This acrylic yarn is such a pretty shade of green, I thought it would make a lovely, easy care cardigan. I am trying out a new vintage pattern that features cables. I think the acrylic yarn will keep the cable stitches nicely defined. The ribbing for the back hem is on the needles, so away we go!
