You cannot go wrong with yarnicorn. You really cannot. This yarn shade from We Are Knitters is just stunning. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love it. My winter magic sweater, my lost road trip cardigan, and now the September Dreams cardigan have all been knit with it. This time, instead of “the wool”, it’s knit in the petite wool. A lighter yarn, just as warm and cozy!
This cardigan is a knit that’s perfect for beginners wanting to learn a couple extra skills. The ribbing is knit in a 1×1 twisted rib, the body pieces are knit in your standard stockinette stitch, and you’ll pick up stitches for your edging around the front.
I basically first had the idea for this back design. I really wanted a long cardigan with a slit up the back. And when I figured out the method to do that, the rest fell into place.
It’s got the coziness of a blanket and robe together. It’s the perfect fall piece. Strolling the pumpkin patch, sipping on your pumpkin coffee. In my case, always the iced. I wonder if I’ll ever try a warm coffee.
I knit the September Dreams cardigan using size 12mm or US size 19 straight knitting needles. It used roughly 8 skeins of the We Are Knitters petite wool.
The pattern is available on both Etsy and my shop, by clicking the shop button in the menu above. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
