I'm excited to share my finished #205 Two Way Wrap Cardigan with you today!
The yarn I used is KnitPicks Simply Alpaca in the colorway Alaina.
The pattern is #205 Two Way Wrap Cardigan by SweaterBabe on Ravelry.
This sweater, true to it's name, can be worn two ways. Here it is upside down...or, right side up?
The pattern was well written and easy to use. I only had one issue with this guy and it was easily solved; the instructions for the neck band don't specify whether to use a loose or basic bind off. I used a basic bind off and it was a mistake! the neck band hung tightly across the back of my neck like a rope and was very uncomfortable, and when flipped upside down the garment did not drape nicely. I took the neck band out and bound it off with a yarn over bind off and all was well.
I'm pumped I was able to finish this sweater before the weather really starts heating up. This way I can live in it for the rest of Spring!
What do you think of the finished product? Is this a pattern you would try?
