Wallis Wallis Wallis

Behold the Wallis Cardigan

Pattern: Wallis Cardigan from Interweave Knits Summer 2008

Yarn: Cascade's Pima Tencel in White

Needles: sz 4 and 6

This yarn is so soft and drapes so well. I wasn't happy with the sleeves from the pattern, so I altered them as follows:

On smaller needles, with waste yarn, CO 42 sts using backwards cast-on method. Join yarn and k1, yo. Repeat pattern to the last st. K1. Following the same pattern as the beginning of the body, knit rows 1-6.
Row 7: Knit row. Row 8: With larger needles, Purl row. 83 (89, 95, 99, 105)
Follow pattern as directed to finish sleeves.

It's better, but not perfect. I think my arms are just too skinny for such big sleeves. Ah well.

As you can see, it looks great over a cardigan, in the Netherlands, with my family:
