I want to make a sweater (preferably a cardigan but I'm flexible) with some colorwork. However, because I've never worked with multiple colors before, I want it to be easy and fairly straightforward. I was looking at Wendy Bernard's Fair Enough
) but I'm not crazy about the neck shaping — or lack thereof. (It's so floppy! I never button my cardigans all the way up so the flaps would just hang unattractively.)
I can probably fiddle with the pattern to make a more flattering neckline but I'm not confident enough in my skills yet to go altering others' patterns.
The problem is that I've already purchased yarn for the Fair Enough cardigan (before I noticed the problematic neck). As such, I have worsted weight wool (1110 yds of MC, 110 yds of CC1, and 110 of CC2) that I'd love to be able to use for my first "fair isle" sweater. As I said, I prefer cardigans but I'll also consider other types of sweaters (except turtlenecks or cowl necks... basically, anything with a funky neck). I also like fitted sweaters that are worn close to the body.
Does anyone know of any sweaters that would fit my criteria?
