New! England Avenue Cardigan

New! England Avenue Cardigan

Another Tricksy Knitter cardigan pattern. England Avenue because, like Fifth Street, it's a street here in Courtenay. England because the stitch pattern is called English Diamond in Barbara Walker's Treasury. And finally, because Chris suggested it, so he should get most of the credit. 

It's a nice basic shape, with some side shaping, and set in pockets. Nice broad buttoned cuffs that make it feel a little dressy. And the lattice stitch pattern along the neck add firmness and shaping. Long cardigans are great for those days when you have to dash out of the house and all you have to wear are a grubby t-shirt and jeans (which is every day for me, except for pajama day).

Easy to knit up in Aran weight. And as I was suggesting yarns in Ravelry, I noticed that Elann has Berroco Pure Merino Aran for $3.78 a ball. Uh oh... I know that I should be starting to knit for warmer weather (warmer weather? what warmer weather), but extra fine Merino, tasty.
