I love the ease and flow of laceweight cardigans, but I’m a chronically lazy knitter. I needed to design a cardi that would be easy to wear and easy to knit, seamless, and finished at the bind off. Any garment with directions that include “pick up and knit hundreds of stitches around the border” ends up hibernating in a drawer somewhere, never to be finished, in my personal lazy knitting history. I wanted to avoid that un-finish-itis, which leads to cast-on-itis, and nothing to show for weeks of knitting work.
