Gitane patterns Mid Pink (top) & Sea Green (bottom) // designed by: Marylene Lynx
So, I've always, always wanted to make a cashmere sweater, and since I was such a good girl last year, I got some amazing Jade Sapphire neon pink (Pink Panther) 2-ply for Christmas from Purl Soho (p.s. their blog is wonderful)—big thank you to the Mr. It wasn't enough to make a sweater, but I will never turn down cashmere!
And all at once, I had enough for a sweater! Oh, but what sweater?! Let the pattern hunt begin!
Now, I'm not the kind of knitter who tends to use the "suggested" yarn with any pattern. And, yes, sometimes that leads me to undesirable results. But all the same, I gots to be me. So when I ran across these two oh-so-lovely patterns by Marylene Lynx on Ravelry. Designed to be knitted with a fine lace weight yarn, I thought, one of these might work with my cashmere! I'd have to slightly alter whichever one I use because I'd only be working with two colors, but nevertheless... Let the adventure begin!
