Gabrielle! Which is actually the pattern I’ve been leaning towards. I already have a pink cardigan I knit last year so a pullover was what I really started to think about. Added bonus, I’ll have enough yardage leftover to make my BFF Jess a Carbeth Cardigan in the pink color too! I’ve already knit two Carbeth cardigans with Intent Yarn so why not make another? Also, Periwinkle Sheep is back from their vacation, you should grab some Intent Yarn for yourself while it’s still $15 a skein!
I’m down to the ribbing on my cotton Guthrie, then I just have to knit the short sleeves (I’m thinking elbow length). I’m heading to Chicago next week for a little vacation so I’m hoping to pack it with me. Send me all the good knitting vibes so that I have it blocking by Sunday! Have a wonderful knit filled weekend!

  1. wooohhhooo!!! I can’t wait to see the end result! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. All of your work is beautiful. I voted for Gabrielle because of the lace work down the front. Would love to make this for myself, but I think the Aran weight yarn is a little heavy for my full figure.

  3. Going to be gorgeous…can’t wait to see the finished sweater!!

  4. I love what you chose! I just wanted to say that I love reading this blog. Your voice comes through loud and clear and really makes me happy. your joy in crafting and color and relationships is so palpable. xo

    1. Thank you! I always strive to share what brings me joy, so I’m glad you’re feeling it ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yayyyy! Love this pattern. It’s so simple and classic, with wonderful drape. You always add new discoveries to my favorite designers list.

  6. I look forward to all of your email messages! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Just a quick Chicago weather warning…your cotton sweater looks beautiful but it was 100 degrees today…so make sure to pack some really lightweight stuff as well…have a great trip!

    1. Chicago weather is so up and down, but this is all cotton and I love this particular cotton because itโ€™s so light and cool.

  8. That will be beautiful. Iโ€™m jealous that you live somewhere that has weather that allows you to wear all these gorgeous sweaters! Iโ€™m sitting here with a list of relatives who need knitwear because they live in Canada, Oregon, Northern Ireland…anywhere but Southern California, where I live. ๐Ÿ™‚ OK, I grew up in Cincinnati, and I donโ€™t miss shoveling snow. But I miss cool weather.

    1. You know what you could do? Make it in a bulky cotton blend and just do short sleeves! It would be super cute. I adapt ๐Ÿ˜‰ MD gets cold but I also need lighter weight stuff too.
