Cardis for cuddling
As the leaves fall off the trees, our minds turn to snuggling up in warm clothes that feel like cuddles. Or, in my case, a friend, on her birthday, tells me about the kind of cardigan she'd like to knit for herself.
This one's for you, Jess!
No Frills cardigan by Petite Knits - made with 4ply and a strand of silk mohair, this is one cosy cardi. We're on the hunt for a great silk mohair to stock, so let me know your faves!
Midtown Cardigan by Stephanie Jessica Lau. You could get almost exactly this colour in Ashford Tekapo 8ply, and it would lend itself perfectly to the garter stitch. Or for a bit more drape and extra squish, go for Outlaw Vanitas in Brass.
Or Libby's brand new pattern, Piper, featuring the most perfect cable detailing. Again would be fantastic in Ashford Tekapo DK for a nice strong structure and stitch definition. To add some luxury, there's also Quince & Co Phoebe in bouncy, squishy merino.
Back to mustard, in this case our favourite of all time, Hayloft in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. Ronan by Andrea Mowry looks perfect for slouching around at home in and heading out the pub for a beer and some knitting on a relaxed weekend.
Here's to warm, cuddly, cosy cardis to look forward to winter with!
