Pattern - Whisper Cardigan from Interweave Knits, Spring 2009.
I used pretty much a whole skein of semi solid Wellington Fibres Lace weight in a honey gold colour, and about 5/6 of a variegated skein of same. (Can I say how thrilled I am with the variegated? No real pooling or flashing, just a really nice mix and meld of colours.)
Modifications to pattern - I made the bottom skirt part longer and wider - I came around the front farther than the pattern says (I don't know how much, I didn't really keep good notes).
I also knit garter stitch bands at all edges (sleeve hems and bottom hems, because I think the design is on crack if she thinks plain stockinette stitch will lie flat "with a little blocking". I mean, come on - how often does that happen?)
I also picked up along the fronts of the bottom skirt and knit about 3cm of garter stitch to close up the front a bit, then added I-cord ties to the top.
Gave the whole thing a bit of a steam blocking (man! did that make the stitches even out nicely!), and voila! A sweater I am extremely happy with. I will wear this a lot, and I plan on making some sleeveless linen dresses in gold, olive green and a melon colour to go with it.
