I never thought I would say this, but I have now completed not one but two cardigans in lace weight yarn. A slightly modified version of the featherweight by Hannah Fettig I knitted for my mum, also in Fyberspates Scrumtious lace (this one in teal). It’s amazing what one can achieve from one skein, or 1km, of silk weight yarn. Knitted from the bottom up, I extended the sleeves and front pieces and made the ribbed edges around the neck and on the front slightly shorter. I was holding my breath I bound off as I with this modified version with larger front pieces ending up with a mere few yards to spare.
I’m enjoying wearing the cardigan. It is truly as light as a feather and the silk/merino mix makes it as warm as any chunky cardigan but without the heavy weight. It is very comfortable and I think the yarn drapes beautifully. And all at the bargain price of £4 from a Leith walk thrift store.
