I periodically kept seeing the “Vortex Cardigan “ pattern and after seeing the modifications with Brioche collar and 2 color snowflakes I was determined to make it. I’m almost 50 and have regular hot flashes so I was concerned about the yarn weight and having it be useful for a short time each year. I’m working my way through this lovely pattern now and I’m so glad I ordered the yarn called for. It’s gorgeous in color and feels like a plush silk pillow. Extremely soft but also smush-y. I really can’t do it justice with words, you’re just going to have to get some for yourself!
