Michael Kors Boxy Cardigan
This pattern is from the Spring/Summer 2007 Vogue Knitting. I decided on this project after seeing Elann's version using their linen yarn Linus. I have seen a lot of slouchy vests both in woven fabric and knits, and I thought this would be a fun piece to play with layering.
This is Elann's version with Linus
I used a lot less yarn that Elann recommended, but maybe because I went up in needle size. I think my cardigan fabric looks less dense than theirs. I wasn't too sure about this one once it was finished but I like it, especially with the belt.
The directions are not the best and the pieces are oddly shaped,. I know I had to modify the front pieces because their decreases were not right. All in all, this is not a difficult project and produces a trendy garment.
