I’m terrible at choosing a nice pattern when I already have a specific yarn in mind, maybe you can help me .
My nana can no longer knit because of her arthritis and she gave me her stash yesterday:thumbsup:. There’s a bunch of Paton’s Shetland Ragg in there, it seems to be a bulky weight yarn and it’s a gray tweedy color. There was a back of a sweater of some sort already knit, she clearly had plans for this yarn but can’t fulfill them because of the arthritis pain :verysad:.
My nana is very sweet and we bond over my knitting. She’s always giving me pattern magazines she finds, etc. As a thank you for passing on her stash, I’d like to rework this yarn into a sweater for her (since that seems to have been her original intention). So I’m looking for a fairly simple cardigan pattern that will look nice in this yarn. Nothing very fitted, just something cozy and warm for sitting in front of the tv during the winter. Maybe a pocket in front for her glasses, etc.
Any suggestions? Or does anyone have a link to a build-your-own sweater type of chart or site? Thanks so much in advance.
Here’s a not so great pic of the yarn for inspiration
