Finished Object: Piper's Nichole Cardi

Look what I finished last night while watching 'Game of Thrones' last night!


The obligatory 'you can't make me pose' pose.


The Particulars:

Pattern: Nichole Cardi (Rav link)
Yarn: Reynolds Odyssey (now discontinued), 3 balls
Needles: Size 5 and 7 circulars, 16" and 24"
Deviations: I had to make the cardi a little shorter than the pattern called for (by about 2.5 inches) because I was seriously running out of yarn. I had pulled the Reynolds Odyessy out of my stash, and I only had 3 balls (312 yards). I think a fourth ball really was needed to get the sweater to the intended length.
Would I knit this pattern again? Absolutely! This was a test knit for my friend, Sam, and she will be selling this pattern on Ravelry once she has everyone's input on the pattern. It was a very quick knit - I think I would like to make it is a softer, more pliable yarn next time. I think this will make a great layering cardi this coming fall.
