Drops Tailored Cardigan

Project: DROPS 97-18 Tailored Cardigan
Yarn: Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton DK - color: 987
Needles: US4 (3.5mm) addi circulars
Modifications: shortened sleeves

I've been working on this cardigan for a few months. While I was knitting this, I only posted a few photos on Ravelry and didn't talk about it here because I wasn't sure if this project would work out. It's finally done and I'm so happy it fits!

I usually avoid knitting with 100% cotton yarns. It's inelastic to knit with and the finished garment is a bit heavy. But I still enjoy knitting with Rowan yarns. I just love soft neutral colors. When I saw this yarn in the store, I immediately noticed this beautiful shade of almond beige.

I look forward to starting my next project!
