Pattern: Shalom Cardigan
Yarn: Peace Fleece Worsted in Ancient Fern; about 3 skeins?
Needles: US #10.5
Notes: This yarn has been in my stash FOREVER it seems like. I've attempted several patterns with it but none worked out. You see, this yarns is extremely rustic and scratchy and pretty thick to boot. The color is absolutely gorgeous though! It is an overall brown color but with strands of green and flecks of dark red and purple.
I made so many minor little modifications to this pattern but did not make detailed notes. Obviously I added two more button holes. And I increased after the yoke in attempt to give it an "A" sillouette but halfway through the body I because nervous that I would look like a box so I added waist shaping to compensate. I think these mods were fairly successful. However, when I attempted to do something (honestly I don't remember exactly what I did) about the large armholes it did not work.
All in all, I think wearing it over a darker undershirt hides some of the flaws (the large armholes!) and I think I like how it came out enough to actually wear it occationally.
