I wanted to use up some of my stash. This is a perfect cardigan to do this as it uses a variety of yarns. It's also fun to use novelty yarns with this pattern. The stitch patterns are left up to you so you can try different patterning (moss stitch, yarn overs, bobbles, etc).
about 5 sts per inch.
I raise my own small flock of sheep, using their wool for some of my yarns. I hand dye all my own yarns and sell them at festivals and in my cottage studio on my farm in Barnesville, Maryland called Dancing Leaf Farm. I create a number of patterns using my yarns.
