In search of the perfect cardigan : Lucinda

The weather is warming up and I realised that I didn't have any light weight cardigans in my wardrobe. I went through my stash and found lots of yarn which would be perfect for a light weight summer cardigan. So with yarn in hand I went browsing through Ravelry. There are so many lovely patterns out there but realistically I would never be able to make all of them.

So after lots of swatching and false starts, my choice was Lucinda.
I chose my Madelinetosh Merino Light in Curiosity, that has patiently been waiting for two years, and started knitting. As I was knitting this I wasn't quite convinced as the cardigan doesn't have a front, Lucinda is something between a shrug and cardigan. Now that I've finished it and worn it several times, I just love it and think this will be my perfect summer cardiagn.

There are lots of features that I like in this design and I'm thinking of making another one but with long sleeves and a front.

ps: For my French readers, I will do a translation of this post a bit later when I have time.

Pattern: Lucinda
Yarn: Madelinetosh Merino Light in Curiosity
