If there's one thing I've learned from these particular photos, it's don't photograph a blue sweater against a blue wall. Duh! Anyway, I can't stomach a re-shoot at this moment, and I have such a backlog of projects to photograph that I am accepting these as "good enough." I hope you will, too. :-)
This is the Newsom Cardigan by Bristol Ivy. This is such a cool design. You start at the center back hem and increase to form the V-shape on the back that extends around the underarms and forms the front raglan sleeve shaping. This was a pretty quick knit, too.
The yarn is Berroco Corsica, which is 90% cotton/10% cashmere. Lovely to knit with and to wear.
This did require some pretty aggressive blocking at the back hem where the V comes to a point, but I was able to get it nice and flat. Unfortunately, you can see the lines formed by my drying rack. Oh well.
This is a great layering cardigan for fall, when the weather is still pretty warm here. The raglan sleeves stay put on my shoulders, too, which isn't always the case with this shape. I could see more of these in my future.
