This was my first project with Jo Sharp’s Alpaca Kid Lustre in an eggplant colour which I think has been discontinued.
Big dark blob, sorry…but you can see the detail here and the gorgeous colour:
I love the cable rib:
Pattern:Garnstudio 88-4 Cardigan
Yarn:Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre It is a beautiful yarn, a delight to have through one’s hands and it does indeed have a lustre. The usual wonderful Jo Sharp colour palette. Australians are so lucky that this is a local brand.
Modifications:I adjusted to ribbing to stop below my bust. Learnt to crochet the flower, but haven’t done so yet. I’m also not really happy with the neck. The instructions were a little unusual. Maybe I got them wrong. Maybe I should have just followed something I felt comfortable with.
Thoughts:Again too big. I keep saying that, don’t I? But it’s still eminently wearable.
