I have 10 balls of Calmer in a beautiful pool blue in my stash. I want to knit a summer weather cardigan with it and can't make up my mind about the pattern. I have been trolling Ravelry for a while now and need you to chime in. I know Calmer is pricey (this colour was discontinued, so a good deal) but enough of treating this like it's gold. It's only good yarn if I knit with it!
I'm considering things with a gauge between 22 and 19 sts over 10 cm. I'm worried the 19 sts will be too loose, but for now I'm considering it.
Sandrine. Another great Bonne Marie pattern. I really like this one. But more as a pullover because I don't want to have to button it all the time. The style is very flattering for me. But I really wanted a cardi. Hmm. I also don't do short sleeves very much without something on top (like a cardi) so this might also go into the "for another yarn" pile. I *will* make this though.
Loll. The advantage of this one is that it was made for Calmer. I rather like the little fringey bits though it looks like they'll be a bitch to knit.
Diminishing Rib. This was the pattern that made me dig out the Calmer in the first place. But I have to say, I'm not so hot on it as I look at the finished versions on Ravelry. I would change the neckline and possibly the sleeves which seem to bell our more than in the photo. I want it to work, but just don't think it will.
Maybe Laura will finish this one. That's a nice sweater too. It has very flattering shaping.
Let me know which sweater is Calmer worthy. But don't suggest a February Lady. I love it, but it looks terrible on me.
