I don't remember exactly how I came upon this cardigan by DROPS design, I might have been browsing through legwarmers, but the striking combination of black and white stranded knitting arrested my eyes and made me look through the projects on Ravelry. And when I saw Saviera's hat interpretation I knew I had to knit this, more so as I had just the yarn remains from Gaby's cardigan. Like Saviera, I cast on 96 sts for k1p1 ribbing, but then increased to 120 sts for the stranded design.
Pattern: Jacket 116 by Drops Design
Yarn: Alize Cashmira 100% wool in black and white
Needle: 3.5 mm rib, 4 mm body
Time to knit: 2 days
I bought a piece of black fleece to make a lining for the hat, but we still haven't got any winter here, the temperatures are well above 0 C, actually it was 11 C earlier today and the fleece would be redundant in such warm weather. The snowdrops in front of our building have blossomed! I don't remember them ever coming to bloom so early.
