We’re heading out to Europe in three weeks, so before Christmas, I set out to knit something that I could wear in the northern spring. I found the Before Dark pattern, by Finnish designer Veera Välimäki. Finland being one of the places we’ll visit, I was drawn to the pattern and knitted it using a beautiful local tweed yarn by Bendigo Woollen Mills.
All in all it took two months to finish. Unfortunately my loose tension struck again – the body is much looser than I would like. The cardigan has turned into a pea-coat! That means I can wear it as outerwear and layer as much as I like underneath. Useful, given the changeability of the weather lately.
