Carol’s designs are always fun to knit and this one was no exception.
Ravi has a circular yoke, a lace section and lots of garter stitch and short rows.
You may notice that my Ravi looks quite a bit different than Carol’s original. I knew that the short body on the front of this cardigan probably wouldn’t be long enough for my long torso and I was right.
Carol added an option to lengthen the fronts in the pattern and I went ahead and added 4 inches to the length. In hind sight I probably would have been ok with just an additional 2 inches because Berroco Vintage DK stretches with blocking.
I opted to only add 4 buttons in the front. I thought it looked kind of funny closed all the way down at this length.
Lastly I thought the short sleeves really suited the cardigan and I knew I would get more wear out of it this way as I can wear it with my summer dresses and then switch to a long sleeved layer underneath for Fall and Winter.
Carol is doing something a little different with her 100th pattern. She’s offering the pattern as a KAL.
The pattern will be sent out in a series of clue’s with photo tutorials, suggestions for mods *like my added length* and lots of support on her Ravelry group set up just for this pattern.
The first clue has been released and there are already 158 versions of Ravi on the go!
