Pattern: Olivia / Thrown Together / Kim Hargreaves
Yarn: Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds DK, colour: brown BFL
Mods: knitted the pocket linings in a contrast yarn (British Sheep Breeds DK, BFL marl) like Kim does in her design Daisy
I knitted this together with the ladies from the Olivia KAL in the Kim Hargreaves group on Ravelry. A KAL really helps to motivate you to keep working on it. It was a nice knit, but every big project has a moment when you think “why did I start this? it will never be ready.”
The British Sheep Breeds DK is one of the best yarns I’ve worked with. Just as good as the Felted Tweed from Rowan. Soft, not itchy and a very pretty heathered brown. I wish you could see the cardigan in real life, it is so pretty.
I am going to wear it a lot when the weather gets colder again.
Lovely vintage buttons bought in Melbourne, Australia.
It fits great like all Kim’s patterns. I know it looks short with the long shirt I am wearing underneath, but the length is perfect.
