Central Park Cardi
Yarn: 450 g of Aran Tweed that I got from Commodum, in Dingle
Needles: 3.5 mm for the body, with the collar knit on 4.0 mm and 4.5 mm
Pattern: a shameless copy of Knitscene's Central Park Hoodie
Notes: Well, you know, I couldn't get a copy of the Fall 2006 Knitscene, and the other possibilities I had for this yarn didn't work out. I looked at a bunch of CPHs, counted ribs and cables, crossed my fingers and went for it. I do cables without a cable needle, using Grumperina's tutorial.
Here's a look at the double, mirrored cable on the back. Uh, ignore the wonky collar there.
As you can see, I don't have a hood. I ran out of yarn, so just put in a tall collar instead. This way, when it's cold, I can just wear the collar up for a bit of extra warmth.
I will probably just end up wearing it open a lot.
I think this project made me totally fall in love with cables. I used to think they were a bit too much, too busy visually, but not so!
