I got married in early April. When I was making my wedding dress, I suddenly realized it might be a bit cold in case the ceremony was going to be held in the lovely landscape outside of the wedding venue we hired – but a knitter can remedy a situation like that, right?
Something Blue is a sweet little cardigan, designed to go over that perfect dress. It’s only waist length, so a skirt can flow freely, still being warm and cozy. Worked top down with raglan shaping, you can try it on along the way to ensure the fit. The waist is pulled in with a sideways applied waist band featuring an easy cable pattern.
