Joy H. from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada knit this super cool version of the #112 Dramatic Lace Wrap Cardigan in a yarn that made it just perfect for her teenage daughter.
"The pattern was easy to follow and knit up very quickly. It was a bonus to not have any seams to deal with when the knitting was finished.
I chose to knit this pattern for her after I saw it on “Ravelry.” I instantly fell in love with the lacy, feminine look and of course being seamless was an added bonus.
I decided to knit this cardigan in a hand painted yarn, so I chose Lucy Neatby’s 'Cat’s Pajamas' in the color Mermaid.
I felt that the color of the yarn would appeal more to my daughter as she tends to enjoy a funky, younger look.
I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this pattern and I can’t wait to make one for myself. I hope you enjoy the finished product as much as we do!
Thanks SweaterBabe for creating such a fabulous pattern" -- Joy H.
You're very welcome, Joy. And thank you so much for sending us these great photos of it!
The hand-painted quality of the yarn and the vibrancy of the colors really transform this into a young, sophisticated, and fun cardigan for your daughter!
LOVE seeing it in such a different color story than the muted grey I used for the original sample.
