Lattice Cardigan

I used the pattern for the Aran Knit Jacket (31) from Better Homes and Gardens Knit It! 2002 issue. I modified it slightly since the instructions for the sleeves were wrong for the x-tra small size. They turned out to be about 3 feet long when I knitted them according to the instructions! I also used a K4, P1 rib for the stitch for the sleeves instead of the body pattern since it ended up looking cleaner and less bulky. Next time I will most likely use a different button hole technique as well and try to knit the bottom portion as one piece on circular needles to reduce all the seaming. All in all a very nice comfy warm sweater.

So this made me think of a dream my sister told me about. After she met Mowgli, she really wanted to get a kitten but she's allergic. That night, she had a dream that her husband bought her a cat covered in yarn instead of hair so she wouldn't get allergic.

Awesome sweater! Way to get the knitting factory started!
