I bought this sweater pattern and yarn at Stitches last August in Chicago. The pattern is Sundrop Cropped Cardigan by Kirsten Hipsky. I didn’t figure I’d get to it too quickly as I usually have shop knitting to do. So when we found ourselves on a four-day road trip to Arizona and a month away from the store this past winter, I decided that was the perfect time to take a stab at the sweater. I got most of it done on the road, then finally finished it after we got home. It originally had three-quarter length sleeves, but I decided I wanted them longer, so I picked up the stitches and did a 2×2 rib with a little flared cuff. I also made it a good 8 inches longer than the pattern called for. Plus I changed the button placket to garter stitch instead of ribbing. All in all, I really like it. I made it with Webs Valley Yarns, “Sheffield,” which is 70% merino, 15% silk, and 15% angora. Totally yummy, even though I do find fibers floating everywhere!
