Looking at the above photo, you're probably wondering what it's going to become when finished. It's probably best described as a stole with armholes. I sort of like stoles because they provide a nice covering for the back without being too warm. However, I don't like having to hang on to them to keep them in place, so I find them a bit impractical. The textured cardi feels a lot like a stole when worn, but it's a bit too long, and I wanted to make something without the inverted V in the back.
So, I created by own pattern for this stole with armholes. I made a "muslin" of my pattern using some inexpensive knit fabric in order to get the pattern right. Here's what it will look like when done, more or less. There's going to be a 2x2 ribbing added at the bottom edge.
