I finished seaming up my Minimalist Cardi last night, and I don’t intend to take it off any time soon. I knew as soon as I started knitting this sweater that it could easily become my go-to, toss over anything cardigan. Add the soft and cozy Plymouth Earth Hillside Linen (80% linen, 20% alpaca) on top of that, and you’ve got the perfect cardigan for the long reading and writing sessions that comprise this English graduate student’s life.
I have my dear friend Molly to thank for this one. She mentioned wanting to knit it last time she visited, and I quickly became obsessed. We decided to work on it in a loose knitalong, and I can’t wait to see how hers turns out!
