Can’t stop hearing this song since I started knitting the Caramel Sweater by Isabell Kraemer. It’s basically a striped, boxy, blanket – style cardigan that can be worn open or pinned across the front.
Striped, boxy, blanket- what’s not to like? I’m a lazy dresser. I tend to stay in my yoga pants and sweatshirt long after the morning run, only to change five minutes before my husband gets home… into fresh yoga pants and a t-shirt. I’m hoping this will have the feel of a sweatshirt hoodie while looking less frump. It’s not all that boxy (that is my tiny daughter wearing it for the photos.) It’s also a very straight forward pattern. I do regret not making my stripes 7 rows thick instead of 6 so that my yarn ends would start on alternate sides with each stripe and not be so difficult to weave in all on one. But that’s no big deal. I’m also a little concerned that the front edges will curl under, even with the banded edge.
Hopefully I’ll be able to wear this by Christmas. Especially if I am lazy about blocking it, which I often am.
