I’m so excited that I finished my Acer cardigan this past weekend and I truly love how it turned out! I was even more excited to be able to wear it to work today as it is quite chilly here in Phoenix with all the rain we are getting.
Pattern: Acer by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: 7 skeins of Lion Brand Amazing (1029 yards/350 grams/ 940.9m) in the color way violets.
|Lion Brand Amazing|
Needle: US Size 9 (5.5mm)
Mods: The only modification I made was adding a crocheted border to the sleeves and to the border. The crocheted pattern I used was the Arch 4 stitch pattern found in Super Stitches Crochet: Essential Techniques Plus a Dictionary of more than 180 Stitch Patterns by Jennifer Campbell and Ann-Marie Bakewell.
Now on my needles is a bulky quick knit called Chateau designed by Melissa Schaschwary. I’m using my newly acquired Patons Classic Wool Bulky in the color Dark Grey and a US size 13 (9mm) circular knitting needle. I’ve completed a total of 1 and a half repeats of the pattern and have 1 and a half to go before binding off. I can’t wait to wear this cozy shrug!
