What happened.

what happened was, I really really didn't like the knit fabric of the baby cashmerino in the USMP - it felt boardy and stiff and I thought it should be softer and flowy-er.
If I make the USMP again I will use an alpaca. I have a sweater almost finished out of Inca Alpaca and that knit fabric is what I would have liked for this design.
So, bad choice of yarn on my part - live and learn.

I unravelled it so that the yarn, which is too nice to sit in a pullover unloved, can become this

or this - which are written for Rowan cashsoft 4 ply which is essentially the same yarn.


  • Oh, I'm so sad to see that you frogged your sweater, but I feel that you have a good reason. I finally finished mine, and while I love it, the body is too big from the armpits up, so it will be reworked at some point, but for now, I need something on bigger needles.

  • I think either of those would be lovely.

  • That's such a shame. And there I was, feeling sad and sorry for myself that I made a hell of a mess of my hem and am currently re-doing it (again)! Both the other cardis are gorgeous though, I hope one of them works out for you.

  • Can you tell me where I might find the bottom pattern - I love it!
