Phase four in my saga of Hannah Fettig patterns. This cardigan was knit with lace weight yarn. Yes, lace weight! It certainly lives up to its name, however, as it's light as a feather. Featherweight. As I've said with all of these Knitbot projects, despite the small gauge the stockinette pattern makes it a breeze to get through.
I added an inch to the body length since I'm not a big cropped top type of person, though it's still not what I would call a "long" garment by any means. Perfect for a high waisted skirt or perhaps worn over a tunic, however. I had to block it a little more aggressively than usual to stretch the arms a little, because initially they turned out a little tight. The cardigan is fitted, but has great drape so it's not the sort of piece that I feel like I'll be tugging on all the time or uncomfortable in by any means. This will more than likely go into my bank of repeatable patterns and eventually I'd like to have one or two more in solid colors!
The final comment I have about this project is related to my folly in recognizing that my yarn came in different dye lots. I was halfway through the first sleeve before I noticed that the yarn used for the body was much duller than the rest which had more of a chestnut hue (the living room where I mostly knit is rather dim…) Since both sleeves were knit with this other dye lot, it turned out rather symmetrical and to be honest I don't really even notice the difference much. Sigh of relief!
