The all-purpose cardigan

My wardrobe is simple. I have a lot of very clean lines and single color items. So I tend to rely on accent items to spice things up - shoes, scarves, sweaters... Now that the weather has started getting colder, I'm relying a lot on tshirts and cardigans... ergo this lovely item is going to be a staple.

Behold the black CPH - superwashed, blocked, and currently being worn.
Pattern: Central Park Hoodie - KnitScene Fall 2006
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash
Needles: Size 5 and 7
Colorway: Black

This knit up pretty tight - in fact, I was a little worried about the fit. But blocking made this soft, supple, and just the right size.

LOVE.

More shots - can you tell how much I'm in love with this sweater?
