I love this. I’m living in it.
Yarn: Swish Worsted, Lava Heather
It’s as perfect a cardi as I can currently imagine: classic yet interesting, warm, drapey, flattering, cozy, stylish. And long. I’ve been, well, longing for long.
The Lava Heather is a most complex and plummy brown. Gorgeous.
The stockinette laid remarkably flat after blocking, and it only needed a light steaming with the iron to keep the sides from being too sharply folded along the seam line.
I only made 2 mods: to shorten the cuff length on the arm (7cm instead of 10cm) and knit them straight rather than belled; and to make the sleeve a little snugger by following the instructions for the XS, ie, only casting on 2 per side instead of 4, and picking up the same # of sts for the body.
I used nearly every yard of yarn, even unraveling my swatches.

Somewhat tragically, it is the best stockinette I have ever knit. Smooth, even stitching such as I used to despair I’d ever produce. And it’s hidden on the inside for the most part.
I know it’s there, though.
