Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

From the Mailbox

Hannah: Thanks for another beautiful pattern – I love the simplicity of it, truly a classic piece.

Do you have any suggestions for alternate yarns to use for this cardi?


I will pull part of the answer to this question from the community.  Tayna, aka Yarnosaurus , has the first completed Effortless Cardigan posted on Ravelry.  Wow, she's fast!  She knit hers using madelinetosh 80/10/10 MCN.  You can read about her experience here.

She has the following suggestions for alternate yarns:

Some yarns I’d recommend would be Tosh Merino DK, Tosh DK, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Blue Sky Alpaca, Tosh Merino/Bamboo, Tosh Pashmina, Tosh Merino Light (doubled), Isager Alpaca (doubled), Rowan Felted Tweed, among many others!
Thanks, Tanya, I agree, those would all be fantastic.
What do you think?
