Everyday Cardigan in Turquoise

IMG_1828
Once I find a pattern I like, it is common for me to make many items from the same design. The first time, is usually a test run and I find out new techniques. The second try is almost always better! I can make it faster and can zip through the process. This knitting pattern is called the Everyday Cardigan Lisa Clarke. I adore the button band however this time my button band wants to turn in. It might be because of the type of yarn I used, Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. It is very economical only costing $5 per skein. I also only needed 3 skeins. Which is very cost effective, however my first Everyday Cardigan which was made out of wool did a better job laying flat after blocking.
Red Heart Super Saver Yarn is an all-purpose medium worsted weight yarn that is ideal for afghans, sweaters and accessories. It is machine wash warm, tumble dry low, do not use bleach, do not iron, dry cleanable. It is 100% acrylic, Dye-Lot. #0512 Turqua.

I'm so jealous! I wish I could knit. Your sweater is really pretty and I can see why you would make it again and again. Congrats on such fine work!
