Green Vines

I have spent the last month beavering away on Ysolda's Vine Yoke Cardigan from the latest Twist Collective.
Green Vines
I'm so pleased with the final result, it fits perfectly (and co-ordinates with the garden!)
Green Vines
Here are the stats:
Started: 9th October
Finished: 7th November
Pattern: Vine Yoke by Ysolda from the Twist Collective. Size 36"
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in Happy Forest - a destash by from Cardimoon on Ravelry back in June. It took just under 3 skeins
Needles: 5mm
Comments: A super fast and interesting knit. The short rows and the vine pattern made it interesting and all that garter stitch meant it could be knit in the evening watching films or listening to the radio.
It looked TINY when it was finished, however the yarn and all of that garter stitch makes for a very stretchy garment, so after a good block to open up the lace and stretch out the garter stitch it fits perfectly. One very big smiley face for this knit. Thanks Ysolda for such a wonderful pattern.

Now, what to knit next?
