Because I wanted a black cardigan
I wanted a quite plain, black cardigan. And here it is. Miriam, designed for Quince & Co., by Carrie Bostick Hoge. Designed for Quince & Co. Chickadee, I used Imperial Yarn's Tracie Too, 2 ply 6.0 Sport in color # 23, Black.
Knit as written, except for a few (I think now unnecessary) decreases in the back of the garter stitch band around the front & neck. Reading comments on Ravelry, it seemed like a good idea, but I think it might have been better left as written. On the other hand, I wish I'd knit a bigger size sleeve - the sleeves are awfully narrow, usually not something I've worried about with my knitting.
I really like this yarn - understated but wonderful. I hope to knit with it again. And I love that the sheep it comes from live only a few hours from my home.

- 4 skeins Tracie Too yarn, 4 oz., 395 yards, 100% wool, grown in Oregon. I have quite a lot left, but perhaps not a whole (big) skein.
- Size 2 and 1 needles (US sizes) - though I'd only use the 2 if I did it again.
- Size 35 3/4 (back width at underarm, 18 3/4)
Thanks to my niece, Marie, for taking the first picture.
