This past week I got a chance to make myself the ever popular Shalom Cardigan. Working in bulky yarns made this a quick knit and the twisted rib yoke made it interesting while still being an easy pattern. Colorwise, I wanted a fairly neutral sweater that would work with khakis or jeans but had a bit of interest. So I worked with a base of cream, adding a varigated tan and blue yarn in the yoke. My other mods included working on size 10 needles and adding an extra 5 stitches on either side of the lapel. It is a fun addition to my winter wardrobe that I’m sure will get lots of use. Check out the pattern on Ravelry to see how so many knitters have tweaked this simple and free knit and made it their own.
