Metro

I cannot believe I forgot to blog about Metro!  (My Ravelry page says that this cardigan was finished on March 1!!!)  Better late than never, right?  When this pattern was published in the 2010 Fall issue of Twist Collective, I thought it was “nice” but never really got that I-Must-Knit-This-NOW type feeling.

Then, I got this yarn as part of my Madelinetosh Sweater Club shipment and it was am-A-zing!  Meet Squishy!

 Actualy, it’s tosh 80-10-10 Worsted MCN, but I prefer Squishy, the perfect yarn for Metro.

I loved knitting the cables that are knit on the wrong side of the work and show up differently on the right side – nice touch.

There are a few fiddly bits like joining the neckband to the body of the sweater and kitchenering live stitches in the cable/rib pattern at the back of the neck.

The only thing I would have liked to change are the few rows of reverse stockinette at the bottom.  I wish I had knit those in 2×2 rib to match the sleeves and the front bands.  Too late to frog now!  I’m really happy with this cardigan and I love this yarn.
