Dreadful indoor/evening photos, but you’ll get the idea. And oh look, a kitty polaroid!
This is the cardigan I’m planning on using for the the revamp, and this is the yarn- some knitpicks merino style that I’ve had kicking around in my stash for at least 4 years. I think it’s a good match for this.
I’ve swatched the ribbing portion in my chosen yarn and needles (6 mm, US size 10), and am getting 5 stitches per inch in the ribbing. The cardigan is 26 inches around, when laying flat.
Now, the first decision to make: do I want the angled fronts, like the original cardigan? Or would I prefer normal, straight fronts?
I think I’m leaning more towards straight fronts. The angles of this are nice enough, but that’s not what attracted me to the cardigan. Also, I don’t feel super confident about copping the fronts evenly. What do you guys think? Straight fronts? Or should I go for the chop? I have to decide before I cast on, as the angled fronts would change how much ribbing I’ll need from left front to right front.
