Vintage, Baby!

During our vacation to Vancouver Island this past summer, I cast on for Audrey in Unst thinking that I would get to wear this little cardi over summer dresses.  Yeah right, summer is long gone and we’re well into fall and all I can think about is piling on warm woolies and cranking up the heat!  Even though I don’t think that I will wear this cardigan anytime soon, I wanted to show you my very own Audrey in Unst, or Audrey in Van Isle as I call my version:)

 I love the vintage inspiration for this design and the Shetland lace at the yoke.  Also, this was my first time with seamless set in sleeves and me likey a lot

The fit is perfect and I couldn’t be happier with my finished Audrey:)  Vintage never goes out of style!

Audrey in Van Isle

Pattern: Audrey in Unst by Gudrun Johnston
Yarn: Sundara Yarn Sport Merino in “Flower Studies #152” 
Needles: Size US 4 & 5 /3.5 & 3.75 mm

The Shetland lace pattern originating from the island of Unst was Gudrun’s twist on this classic sweater style. 

The yarn is lovely to knit with… you can’t go too wrong with Sundara yarn.  But for this project, it was all about the pattern ♥♥♥

    That’s one gorgeous vintage cardigan you’ve knitted, Preeti. And you are the pretty lady in red ( or pink). I would wear this beautiful sweater all year round. You’re lucky to have a personal talented photographer, too.
    My Audrey is still needing sleeves…big sigh…

    Gorgeous! I particularly like how it looks buttoned up, it brings out the simple lace and the nice shaping.
