All too often knitters will slave over a special project then feel itís too precious to wear. Perhaps itís the intricacy of the design or the long hours of work required to bring it to life. How could such a special thing belong in your mundane life?
This is not that sweater.
Berries was conceived and designed to be an everyday cardigan - the kind you throw on when you need to run errands like picking up the kids, dropping off the dry cleaning. etc. I based the design on the logan berry mitten from The Mitten Book by Ingrid Gottfridsson and Inger Gottfridsson. To set the design off, Iíve added a simple, contrasting border.
