Morgan Cardigan Pattern Available

Autumn's in the air and you need a warm cardigan to chase away the chill. Morgan features an easy-to-wear zipper front, raglan sleeves, generous collar, and traditional fit. The color pattern was found on a sweater in the Shetland Museum's online photo archive. Made in a rustic, worsted wt. yarn, with a cut steek, Morgan is an excellent choice for the knitter who has done some stranded work and would like try something a bit more challenging.

I think I may have to buy that pattern. Unless, of course, you wanted me to test-wear it????? Hmm? Last chance!

{ } <--that is Dumfounded Silence. Iadmire that *almost* as much as the Fair Isle; both look to me like something that happens if you leave your knitting at the edge of a Faerie Ring in the light of a full moon. I have NO desire to try such things but take enormous pleasure in admiring the work of "them what does".

Gorgeous! And a bit intimidating. But oh, if there was ever a reason to try colorwork, this is it.

This is one of my favorites of yours. I think I like your knitting best when it's only a few colors, and strong geometric shapes. This sweater is another argument in favor of my learning stranded knitting.
