Finished Object – In the Forest of the Night Cardi(s)

I fell in love with the “In the Forest of the Night Cardigan” by Desamour Designs and decided that it would be my birthday present to myself. And by that I mean I bought myself the pattern and yarn for my birthday and made the sweater several months later.

I made size medium and used a little over 3 skeins of Knit Picks CotLin Reflections in the color Stratus. (Unfortunately, this yarn is being discontinued.) I added a few extra rows to the top of the shoulders to make it a little longer, and give a bit longer armhole.

I had most of a skein of the yarn left, so I improvised a quick kerchief to go along with it.

My mom saw mine and requested one for herself, so as soon as she got me the yarn I got started on this version:

This one is size XL and used slightly over 9 balls of Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Pansy Purple.

Once again, I had most of a ball left at the end, but this time I adapted the stitch pattern of the cardigan into a hat.
