Dirty Martini

Dirty Martini

I couldn't resist getting a photo of Joy's recently finished Dirty Martini cardigan, designed by Ella Torrente. She used Cascade 220, but it would also be fabulous in Rowan Pure Wool, Ultra Alpaca, Vintage or other worsted weight yarn (click here to view or purchase on Ravelry).  Joy found the knitting very straightforward; there is a lot of knitting, but she said it was well-suited for tv knitting.  While Joy is very petite, I couldn't help but notice that the vertical stripe and shaping would be flattering for other body types--meaning I going to start this one myself.  Customized for a little extra room with bust shaping, I could rock that flared shape.
