Manu by Kate Davies
I found this pattern on Ravelry and decided there and then I was going to try my hand at making it. I have never attempted icord buttonholes or stitch pleats, and I would usually run a mile at the mere mention of charts as my patterns have been pretty simple up to this point, but what is the worst that can happen, right?! also I really like the cardie, I wear cardies ALL the time so I'm going for it.
Wool choice, as recommended on the pattern but in a beautiful golden tansy colour. natural dyed Shilasdair, it is a beautiful blend of 20% cashmere 40% angora and 40% lambswool British Merino.
Wish me luck!
