[FO] Eva Longoria-inspired Cardigan

Geez, when was the last time I posted my FOs here?

So last fall, I scored some awesome Cascase 220 Superwash yarn in light dusty purple for $5 per skein. These are usually $10 per skein so I was very lucky. Thanks to The Red Bee!

Reg. $9.99, on sale for $5!!

And this turned into a cardigan that I really love. I wear this all the time, and I wore this even to the Barrister’s Ball a.k.a. Law Prom. It was inspired by Ms. Eva Longoria’s sweater in this one photo:

Compare it to my knitted version using two different published free patterns:

I’m like in LOVE with this sweater. It’s very light, and warm, and it feels so… handknit! =)

I love KnitPicks Options Interchangeable needles. I used #8 on this sweater and seriously, the yarn just glides. It was so therapeutic.

So there it is. More to come, since I have a lot of FOs that I haven’t posted here…

  1. hi there, hope you don’t mind me but came upon your site via search on ravelry. i love this, can you tell me what patterns you used?

  2. Sure, you can look at my Projects page too but I uded “Longgoria’s something” and “cabled cardi” together. They’re on Ravelry.

  3. 안녕하세요~ 여기 몇번 왔는데 글은 처음 남기네요. 가디건 예쁘네요~ 저도 뭔가를 많이 뜨긴 했는데, 막상 입고 다니는 옷은 없는 것 같아요. 실력이 아직 부족해서겠죠.
