Purple Cloud







Pattern: Cloud Bolero (modified to be a 1/2 length sleeve cardigan) by Ysolda Teague.
Yarn: Pattons SWS in Real Raisin
Needles: Size 11

This yarn sheds a lot but the sheen and the color makes it worth it to me. Some might think it a bit itchy, but it's okay to me. I think I made a size small.

Ok this looks great!
p.s. That sweater has been shaven, plucked, ect...eventually, it just doesn't look great anymore.

How beautiful! That takes some seriously skill- I definitely wouldn't have the patience for all of that intricate lace work in a sweater.
