The Summer 2018 issue of Creative Knitting is in mailboxes and store shelves, and the northeast is getting snow - again. At some point we will finish up the thick wool turtlenecks and look for a lighter, warmer-weather knit.
Wendy Cardigan uses eyelets against a background of stockinette in diagonals for a flattering look. The open front makes finishing a breeze and the yarn is TO DIE FOR. If you've ever avoided linen or cotton, or if you have hand/arm pain when knitting with stiff yarns, you really should try Plymouth's Nettle Grove. It glides through your fingers effortlessly and has a nice crunchy feel. It's a sport weight yarn (45% cotton, 28% linen, 12% nettle, 15% silk; 218 yds/50g per skein) shown in sapphire # 42. Cardigan uses 5 (6, 7, 7, 8) skeins.
