Reagan by Isabell Kraemer© grasflecken | Reagan
It's Jacqui's turn to dazzle us with her latest finished object and it's Reagan from Isabell Kraemer. The upper shoulder/back part is worked sideways back and forth in plain Stockinette stitch from a provisional cast-on. Stitches are then joined to knit the first sleeve in the round down to the cuff. Then the second sleeve is worked from the provisional cast-on in the round down to the cuff. After that body stitches are picked up from the long side of the back piece to work the fronts and lower back in Harebell Lace to the final length. I-cord finishing is worked last. Jacqui had her eye on the mYak fibers for this cardigan and she chose mYak Baby Yak and Silk. This yarn is 50% baby yak, 50% silk light fingering-weight blend has all of the best qualities of baby yak with the gorgeous sheen and drape of silk. So you can only imagine the drape in that lace section. You can see Jacqui is rather taken with her Reagan above. You can, of course, chose any fingering weight yarn for this project and Jacqui is in love with our hand-dyes like Townhouse Yarns Dame-4ply and my own personal favourite Malabrigo Sock. The only problem left is to figure out which to cast on first! Which is your favourite?
