I just added my 200th pattern up on Ravelry!

Holy! I just added my 200th pattern up on Ravelry!  It is a self published cardigan named Candelia and is available for purchase here for $6.00.

Candelia is a top down, short sleeve cardi with raglan shaping, waist shaping and an optional peplum-ish detail at the back. The pockets are worked by continuing to knit some of the stitches from the fronts and then folded over and sew onto the body. I used 2 hook and eye closures at the top and buttons on the pockets.

I can not tell you how much I love, love, love the colors and the way that Krista dyes her yarns at Pigeonroof Studios. And this yarn base is just a dream to knit with.
The color that I used is called Smoulder and has yellows, browns, oranges, pinks and even bits of red, but they all work together to make an even tone over the finished knit. So much fun to knit with and to watch the new bits of color show up!

Pattern takes-
2 (2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4) hanks of Pigeonroof Siren Two Sock

Approx yards needed: 700 (760, 865, 950, 1020, 1120, 1220, 1350, 1465)

If you are looking for a solid color yarn, Chickadee by Quince and Co. would be a perfect fit:)
