"I wanted a cardigan that would be ideal for everyday wear in a color that would match just about everything. The longer style with pockets and a Fisherman’s Rib shawl collar, this design has everything that I look for in a cozy everyday cardigan. Knit with Biscotte’s DK Pure, a combination of Merino and Silk, this cardigan is not only the perfect amount of comfort but the perfect amount of softness." - Andrea.

I've decided to Handspin the merino/silk, so it will take a while to get enough. I love this pattern. It is very hard to find the wool I want in Australia.
This yarn feels so soft and it’s such a change from finger weight that I made into socks on my previous project. Knits up quickly and is such a pretty color.
I love this pattern! Plan to make it for the Fall!
Looks like it will absolutely be Pure Comfort!
I am currently using the pattern, Pure Comfort Cardigan which I received for free. The pattern is easy to follow and it gives options for a number of different sizes. Once i read the pattern, i bought the yarn from Biscotte Yarns because it looked like the perfect yarn for a summer cardigan.
I love Biscotte Yarns, the yarn is exactly what they describe; the people I have talked with on the phone have been very friendly, efficient and helpful. I cannot wait to finish the cardigan to be able to wear it this spring/summer.
Non vedo l'ora di iniziare a lavorarlo!
