Aidez Cardigan

My sister is rightly concerned that I’ll never pop this cardigan in the mail. I love it! I have some Cascade Ecological Wool in my stash that is now destined to be an Aidez for me. Since the pattern calls for a super bulky yarn, it was indeed a quick knit. I finished the majority of it on the train and plane a few weeks ago. It made for perfect travel knitting; the five different cable charts are easily memorized.

The pattern is a free one from Cirilia Rose via Berroco. I used the 100 per cent wool yarn called for - Berroco Peruvia Quick in Fumar – which is a really lovely, soft yarn that results in a lightweight but warm fabric.

    This sweater has been on my to-make list for some time and I think this is the year that I finally will do it! I think you must be my knitting twin…so many of your projects are ones I think I have been pondering or have already made.

    Wow! I love it! But I don’t know anything about knitting.
    Do you (or someone you know) ever make these for people like me who would buy them? :)
    If so, drop me a line. It’s awesome. :)
