When Speedy is Key !

Do you like super quick knitted projects ?  I love them, especially when they call for size US 15 needles and super bulky yarn.

On my needles this week is the Speedy Chica by Taiga Hilliard.  I'm still trying to stash bust and found I had just enough skeins of Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Blackstone for the project.  The pattern is well written and super easy to follow, with a stitch pattern that is memorizable.

I will be making one modification, which will be for the sleeves.   The pattern calls for a bind off of the sleeve stitches after separating them.  I have elected not to bind off but put the stitches on a holder so that I can knit a few more rows and add a garter stitch band to match the bottom of the cardigan.




This is the back view


The yarn color is black with flecks of gray, blue and burgundy.  Since this will be a short sleeved cardigan, I can see wearing this piece over a solid gray blouse and a pair of dress pants, or a teeshirt and a pair of jeans.  It definitely will be a versatile piece for my wardrobe.
Until next time ~ be creative!
