~Madelinetosh Vintage Cardi Love~

by Paradise Staff February 14, 2013

I am sooo in love with my new cardigan sweater!  I used Veera Valimaki’s pattern, Golden Wheat.  It is a beautifully written pattern (as are all of her patterns!) and is super easy.  Golden Wheat is knit from the top down all in one piece, so no seaming.  Yay!  I used Madelinetosh Vintage yarn and I am totally addicted!  The color is amazing and it’s really soft and it’s even machine washable.  My gauge was a little off as I was using a slightly finer yarn than the pattern called for.  I followed the directions for a size larger than I would normally make and used the same size needles as the pattern called for.  It worked great and fits perfectly!   I also decided to knit the pattern in stockinette instead of reverse stockinette and I put buttons all the way down the front.  I decided not to make the pocket.  A very nice sweater that is really comfy and cute to wear and was enjoyable to knit.  A lovely combination
