Vote on my next knitting project

The Sewing Lawyer clearly needs help. She is dithering. There are 1350 yards (1240 metres, more or less) of a lovely dark blue-greeny yarn, aran weight, in stash.  Its composition is 8% cashmere, 47% merino, 15% polyamide and 30% viscose. It needs to be a cardigan. Would you choose:

Little Wave by Gudrun Johnson 

Little%20Wave     



Girl Friday by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark


Burdock Cardigan by Maura Kirk


Or 

Sunburst Cable Cardigan by Erica Patberg. 


There is enough yarn to make any of these. Tell me what you think!

  1. I love the starburst. It takes me so long to knit I might wear this in 2015. The pattern is awesome. My next will be the alligator scarf for my grandson. Good luck. Karen in Illinois

  2. I would choose the Sunburst cable cardigan just because it's a little different and I think it would look very smart on you.

  3. The sunburst looks fun to make but the burdock is the most beautiful. It has pattern on the sleeves as well as the body and it has play of scale between the broad placket and the small pattern. I think it suits your style.

  4. I like the diamond pattern cardigan the most. Sunburst is a close second.

  5. I think the sunburst could be very flattering on you, but if I had to choose, I'd go with the Burdock--just lovely!

  6. I like the diamond pattern cardi ~ but the sunburst front is interesting (not fussed on the back though). Your wool sounds gorgeous ~ can't wait to see which one you choose to whip up ... J

  10. I like the Girl Friday -- because I'm in love with the shawl collar -- but you have a small frame and could rock any of these! The diamond might be most flattering on your figure. And, I love the sunburst but that seems like a fun casual pattern whereas the other two you could potentially wear wrapped up in your office:)

  14. I've got to go with the sunburst. I like the color used in the pic, but your yarn sound so beautiful and cozy.

  18. Little Wave or Girl Friday! The Sunburst Pattern is cool but I think you'd get sick of it faster. My two cents! Have fun with it!

  19. I think either the Little Wave or Girl Friday would be lovely.

  20. I love the last one, it's so different.

  21. I love the Sunburst, but if you go for something a little less crazy-making, the Girl Friday is really pretty.

  22. They're each good and would work, I'd think. My preference is the Burdock Cardigan. A cardigan is good yarn is, as you know, such a big investment of time and $$ that making a trendy pattern is wasting both. Good luck!
