I just realized that I never blogged about my finished Penelope cardigan from the KAL. The pattern is Penelope by Andi Satterlund. This project was super clear and quick. I enjoyed making and I’m actually working on a second version in my school colors.
From the beginning, I knew I wanted to use two colors that were in the same color family. My inspiration for colors was the Paris Cafe cardigan by Modcloth. Initially, I was thinking about going with the yellow color scheme. However, I don’t own a true blue cardigan. So, I went with Cascade 220 Superwash in hyacinth and baby denim. I really like the results.
The buttons came from Joann’s and I am surprised that I found such a perfect match. I didn’t want contrasting buttons because I wanted it to streamline with the button band.
Overall, this was one of those great and simple patterns for netflixing and relaxing.
