I've been planning to knit the Cria pattern from Ysolda's Little Red in the City book ever since I first saw the preview pictures, I think some time last fall. In January, I ordered the yarn, Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, specifically this project in mind. The pattern was released a couple of months ago, but, as usual, my summer has been slow in the knitting front, so I didn't get around to it until now.
The construction of the yoke is quite unusual, and it took me a while to wrap my brain around it. The rest of the cardigan, in contrast, was very easy to knit. This is, so far, the best fitting sweater I've knit for myself, even if it isn't exactly perfect. The part I'm the least satisfied with is the pockets; all the seaming and multiple layers of fabric was apparently too much of a challenge for my finishing techniques. If I ever knit this pattern again, which I'm considering for the long-sleeved version, I will probably leave the pockets out.
Overall, I'm very happy with this project, which is rare for sweaters. This will probably be my go-to cardigan for hanging around at home for this fall.
