I’m a coziness lover, forever drawn to any sweater that provides the singular comfort of a blanket or bathrobe, in a style fit for everyday wear. When our first sample of the Ivon Cardigan arrived at BT late last summer, I tried it on and immediately experienced that stealthy robe-ness that I crave, particularly when Fall and Winter are looming large on the horizon.
About a month later, another exciting arrival made its way to our doorstep — the very first skeins of Ranch 02: Forbes, fresh from the dye house! This yarn is particularly near and dear to my heart, and I was hoping to commemorate it in my closet in some way. When I pulled out those first skeins of the colorway Tobacco, images of a big cozy Ivon cardigan flashed into view and took up residence in my head. A week later, I cast on.
