The Daily Purl




Bridie by Anna Bell for KnitKnit by Sabrina Gschwandtner
small/medium size
8 balls of Karabella Margrite (80% extra-fine merino, 20% cashmere)
3.75 mm and 4 mm needles
I love so many things about this cardigan: the asymmetrical opening, the subtle texture of the lattice pattern, the delicate pearl shank buttons, the deliciously soft yarn. This was a smooth knitting experience (thanks to the perfectly written pattern) and it met all my expectations when I slipped on the finished cardigan this weekend. It’s a wonderful feeling when the sweater on the glossy page becomes a wearable garment in one’s closet.

  7. A perfectly lovely cardigan. I have thought about this pattern many times, but wasn’t sure how it would hang when unbuttoned. How does it fit if the asymmetrical side is not buttoned? just curious…
