When I went to the Sticks and Stitches even last month I won a door prize of a free pattern from the Twist Collective. After some deliberation, I decided to go go with the Vine Yoke Cardigan (Ravelry) by Ysolda Teague. I’d recently stalled out working on my February Lady Pullover – I was having some serious gauge and size issues, so I decided to use the Galway Worsted that I got on sale at the Spinning Turtle in December. I cast on for the Vine Yoke cardigan last weekend, but it took me several tries to get started due to my lack of ability to ready the directions for the one-row buttonhole. Since then, however, it’s been smooth sailing. The pattern is very original, using short rows to shape the collar and is a perfect combination of easy garter stitch and an easy-to-remember 8 row pattern. The pictures below aren’t great, but the whole thing is kind of a blob right now. I can’t wait to see it finished!
