Soft Denim Cardigan

Just in time for spring, I have finished another wool sweater. Actually, since it is only about 20 degrees today, I don’t have much hope for an early spring, so I think this cardigan will get some play before the weather changes.

Nothing fancy here, just plain, densely knit stockinette stitch in a nice, soft wool (Patons Classic Wool). I designed this myself, to fit me.

There’s no waist shaping, a choice I rarely make, but for this, I really wanted a warm, workhorse cardigan that would fit over another layer; I wanted extra-long sleeves, a long hem, and thick warm knitting. Actually, I guess I made this sweater because I’m cold. Take that, winter!
