And the winner is…

I’ve been looking for the perfect cabled cardi pattern to make with my handspun Shetland wool.

After repeated searches on Ravelry (frustrated by what seems to be an ongoing issue with the gauge filter on the pattern search) I had it narrowed down to a handful of great options. And the winner is (so far, at least):


The Acer Cardigan by Amy Christoffers ($7 Ravelry download). It is a nice cabled cardi, with added lace interest, it buttons all the way down (I have enough of the 1-3 button jackets, thank you).

The gauge is 20 stitches to the inch. My handspun varies between 19 and 20, so I’m knitting the 34 inch size, and it seems to be a good size for now. My last sweaters have all been top-down, so knitting something bottom-up adds an element of surprise that may not be too compatible with this gauge uncertainty. We’ll see.
