Watershed




The moment Amy Swenson's Watershed cardi came across my radar, I dropped everything. It was one of those love-at-first-sight projects - a little, lacey open-front cardigan with cap sleeves that would require less than 400 yards.

Out came the Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed (85% wool, 10% silk, 5% cashmere) in the Beanshoot colorway from my stash. It's not the perfect yarn for the project but it's what I had on hand. When you gotta cast on, you gotta cast on. I mean, look how cute that longer front and shorter back is!

The tweedy yarn does obscure the lacework. Let me rephrase that: the tweedy yarn mutes the lacework. This close-up of the back has a center panel and along the edge, an inner and outer border. (You can click on any photo to make bigger.)

Fast, fun knit. Directions as clear as crystal. Love this project x 1,000.
