I was gifted the pattern for Linda Permann’s Starry Night Cardigan and have begun work on it. Already I’ve gone rogue. The pattern calls for the 88 little motifs to be joined as you go. I’m just not gonna. There are two reasons I shun join as you go. First, I like portable projects so I can make motifs anywhere I happen to be waiting around for something. Second, and sadly, I can’t keep my mind on it. I already have to write down everything I plan to accomplish anyway so I won’t forget. I’d constantly be writing to keep up with where I should join next. By not using the JAYG method the bodice will be a bit less lacy but that doesn’t bother me.
The sleeves of the pattern are pretty short, so I plan to lengthen both the sleeves and the skirt. Good instructions are given for doing both things.
I’m using Red Heart Soft yarn in a cranberry color. I’m repurposing the yarn that was purchased for making the 2012 that never happened. It’s nice and soft and has a nice sheen to it. I can’t wait to see it made!
