[FO] Eva Longoria-inspired Cardigan

Jean Chung3 Comments

Geez, when was the last time I posted my FOs here? So last fall, I scored some awesome Cascase 220 Superwash yarn in light dusty purple for $5 per skein. These are usually $10 per skein so I was very lucky. Thanks to The Red Bee!

Reg. $9.99, on sale for $5!!

And this turned into a cardigan that I really love. I wear this all the time, and I wore this even to the Barrister's Ball a.k.a. Law Prom. It was inspired by Ms. Eva Longoria's sweater in this one photo:

Compare it to my knitted version using two different published free patterns:

I'm like in LOVE with this sweater. It's very light, and warm, and it feels so... handknit! =)

I love KnitPicks Options Interchangeable needles. I used #8 on this sweater and seriously, the yarn just glides. It was so therapeutic.

So there it is. More to come, since I have a lot of FOs that I haven't posted here...
