I finished my Agatha cardigan the day after my last post about it, but didn’t have a chance to take pictures until yesterday. It is wonderful weather here. Cold, but with a nice winter sun and an almost completely blue sky. Yesterday morning my boyfriend and I decided to take a walk through the “forest” behind my house, towards some old mansions where we had coffee.
Anyway, back to the knitting!
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in colour 9489 (Red Wine Heather).
I used a little less than three skeins, but if I were to knit it again, I would have made it a little bit bigger. Cascade 220 Heathers remains one of my go to yarns for quick sweaters. It knits up beautifully, is easily available and wears quite well.
Pattern: Agatha by Andi Satterlund, size XS (with a slightly larger gauge)
A lovely pattern! It has a vintagey look to it that I absolutely adore. It will definitely become a wardrobe staple! The only change I made, was to twist all the knit stitches in the 3×1 rib and on the edges of the lace patterns. Although it was a bit more annoying to knit, it made everything look much cleaner and crisper and I’m really happy I made that choice.
Final Verdict: Love it! The colour is beautiful, the buttons go perfectly with the brown leather colour that I love in belts and shoes, and it fits well. I’m not sure if I’ll knit another one, because I’m not one for repeating patterns, but I’d definitely recommend this pattern to everyone who is looking for a quick little cardigan that looks great with skirts and dresses.

Absolutely gorgeous. I love how it has that vintage vibe about it. You will wonder how you ever dressed without one of these in the wardrobe! Well jel!! :-)
Thanks! I’ve been wearing it almost non-stop since I’ve finished it.
