A pocket lining for a cardigan that I have just started. The pictures are not great, but this yarn shows up the stitches beautifully. It is 24/7 cotton from Lion Brand. It is the recommended yarn for the pattern.
Photo taken with flash, but there is too much glare.
Photo taken without flash, you can't win! However, this photo does show the colour much better. It is called navy but it is brighter than navy, but not a royal blue. It is a very intense rich blue, I love it.
This is the pattern, it is the Textured Cardigan by Jennifer Owens. I came across it in the spring/summer issue of Knit Simple magazine.
It is a fairly simple pattern, with alternating rows of knit and purl with a waist inset of a lace pattern.
I am also knitting an Aran cardigan but it is slow going, and I need something else that is quicker and easier to knit while watching a movie. I have been working on the Aran pattern for several months now and I still have 1/3 of one front plus both sleeves to knit. So it will be a while yet before I see the end of that pattern. Definitely a need for something that works up quicker.
The yarn is a lovely 100% cotton mercerized yarn. It is listed as worsted weight, but it is not quite as thick as worsted, but it is thicker than double knit weight. The yarn is highly twisted so it doesn't come apart as you knit, and the mercerizing process gives it a sheen that is quite appealing.
