I've noticed that there's always room for yet another perfect, comfortable cardigan in my wardrobe. As much as I enjoy working on fast, worsted weight stockinette stitch sweaters (our Mon Manet is a perfect example), I should definitely cast on more cardigans, even if they seem to take longer to finish with all that purling.
So I'm always looking for cardigan patterns that are simple yet interesting to knit, and that I can see myself wearing throughout the year. Thea Colman's Brennivin cardigan from our issue 5 is one of those patterns. You can throw it on every outfit, wear it when knitting in the corner of the sofa or out for a walk in the crisp autumn evening.
We've seen stunning versions knitted for example in De Rerum Natura's Gilliatt and Quince & Co's Owl. Sini is making hers from Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and it's working beautifully. I'm thinking about choosing some Finnsheep wool for mine as I love the contrast between a rustic, natural yarn and the delicate lace details on the back and the fronts.
