First Pick: Cascade Kid Seta Cardigan, by Marelie Hurter (FREE!)
Frothy, drapey, pretty … and very, very simple. Made in laceweight yarn on big needles, the finished cardi should be lightweight and warmer than you’d expect … just the thing for spring. What really sells me on it though is that it reminds me of Annie’s cardi (the ghost in “Being Human”). This one made in into my queue! I think I’ll use something browny-grey?
Second Pick: Forgotten Garden Shawl, by Rose Beck ($5.00)
This elegant geometric shawl evokes formal gardens: box hedges and well-tended rosebushes in measured rows. I think I’d go with green or maybe shocking pink.
Third Pick: Ballycastle Tam, by Anne Podlesak ($5.50)
I love the subtle shading and simple pattern to show off the beauty of natural wool. Gorgeous. I’d be tempted to use my usual palette of blue/green/purple, but I hope I’d have the strength to stick to the lovely colors provided by the sheep themselves.
