Yella Cardie (rav link) is done! I finished her up last week, but then had six days of work before ends could be woven in and buttons sewn on. I got that done today, just in time for a warming trend.
Yella Cardie is a drop shoulder, dolman sleeve V-neck cardie. I know when you read those words "drop shoulder" and "dolman" you automatically think 80's. Not so you naythinkers.
I decreased at the under arm in a pretty arc to get a comfy dolman fit, but no batwings or to make enough extra material to store nuts for the winter. I ended up picking up the sleeves from the body and knitting down to a 3/4 sleeve length. Easy. Granted I did have to make those sleeves a few times before my math matched my ideas, but I got there in the end.
What I ended up with is a useful, comfy summery cardie. And considering I live in California, I should actually get lots of use for this one.
Specs: yarn - Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool color 30 (gold yellow); pattern is my own; buttons are wood and from Joann's.
Photo colors a bit wonky as the camera wasn't cooperating today.
