Spice Cardigan for Alex

Winter is gone, but that rarely stops me from knitting sweaters. I'm always begging Alex to wear cardigans, and I haven't had a lot of luck with knit sweaters fitting him properly lately. I was determined I wouldn't mess this one up.

Alex and I browsed Ravelry for color inspiration, and when he saw the Spice cardi Yvonne Pak (@MissingMuffin) had started for her husband, he said, "I want that!" So I have to give a shoutout to Yvonne since I totally stole her palette.

Pattern: Spice by Andrea Mowry
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Tweed in Black and Spincycle Dream State in Lapis
Buttons: Wooden Heart Buttons

I bought the Spincycle yarn during Black Mountain Yarn Shop's end-of-the-year sale. Using the Plymouth Tweed helped offset the cost a little bit. Plus, Alex prefers a yarn that's more durable, and he doesn't usually go for the 100% wool unless it's superwash. I love how it turned out, and I think it looks so good on him.
