What was your inspiration?
I loved the sweater Myra wore during one of the course episodes. It had varying colors and she recommended trying several different yarns with long color changes. I chose Knit Picks Chroma in worsted weight.
What are you most proud of?
When I finished the cardigan, I added a button band. It was first time I had added a button band. When I realized the cardigan was too short. I ripped out the button band and added about three more inches to the length then added an even nicer button band.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would use a yarn that has multiple plys. Chroma is a single ply yarn and it pills very quickly. I had worn it maybe three times when I notices the formation of pills on the sweater.
