I love this cardigan. It’s relaxed and perfect to throw on before leaving the house, not too hot for summer and still warm enough for winter.

My Greystone has been finished since March but it has been to dark (both outdoors and indoors) to document a black cardigan in photos. When it finally was light again a little baby came and there way no time for taking photos… But I did an Instagram video while modeling the cardigan. Click second picture to see. ;)

Modification: I choosed to skip the Purl Twist Stitch pattern on the back and the pockets and made it all in stockinette.

Gauge: I tend to knit a little looser on the purl row when I knit with a linen yarn. Therefor I always knit the purl row with a smaller needle, in this case 3.75 mm.
