KAL anyone?
Does anyone want to knitalong with me for the Ormond Cardigan? It's next on my Queue, and I expect to begin Ormond swatching in September.

The Ormond is easy, straight forward construction. Here's what they said about it:

“Flattering, wonderfully light and airy seamless jacket that will keep you warm when you take a stroll on a cool night. A 2x2 rib front band is worked concurrently with an overall Rickrack Lace pattern. The waist shaping is done by changing needle size. The seaming is very minimal. Available in 10 sizes."

"Perfect for a cool night on a beach, this gentle and slimming jacket is knit flat in one piece up to armholes to minimize seams."


I think it's an adorable, simple little jacket. The pattern stitch is created with simple knitting
techniques: K2T, SSK, and yarnover. It's a 4-row repeat, 8st wide. Very simple. I love the waist shaping technique...no decreases and increases...it's accomplished by changing the needle size! That is so smart! No decreases to mess up the continuity of the rick-rack pattern stitch!

I can visualize this on someone young or old! You could use cotton, bamboo, acrylic or any animal fiber! The yarn recommended is a sport weight, but I'm using Silky Wool. It's dk, but I'm certain I'll get gauge with it.

Anyway....if you'd like to knit this with me, I'd be pleased to be your knitting buddy.
I'd call myself your mentor...but that's rather high-sounding. Knitting buddy is better!

The pattern is a $7 pdf at Twist Collective. Click here.
