I have some kind of disease at the moment, I can’t seem to stop myself from casting on new large projects that I never seem to finish. In that vein, I have just started the Little Waves cardigan. The blogosphere is rammed with beautiful cabled cardigans and I had to get in on the action. This is a Brooklyn Tweed pattern by Gudrun Johnson. BT is incredibly popular at the moment and with good reason- their patterns are wonderful, both classic and up-to-date. I’m a fangirl.

Although Opposite Pole is a cabled cardi of outstanding beauty, I’m not sure if it will be comfortable to wear under a coat because of the massive collar. The yarn is Malabrigo Rios, which is very well reviewed on Ravelry. I can’t seem to capture the purpleness on camera, so try to imagine this looking slightly more dark violet than navy.

I cast on at the weekend and I’ve done the ribbing at the bottom and I’ve established the wave pattern.

The green yarn is holding the stitches I’ll work at the end to create the pockets. POCKETSES!
Here’s a close-up of the pattern.
