Green Galore

The size of the blanket in the previous post was dictated by the amount of multicoloured Italian wool, but I did hope to make a big dent in the green wool while I was at it. Mmm, not so much, the bag is still two-thirds full!
Luckily I came across a cardigan pattern that should be well suited to the green wool. I belong to a Facebook group called Brei en Geniet - Knit and Enjoy. I joined it mainly so that I can download and print patterns for my neighbour Dorie, who only has Facebook on her phone. But I like to see the patterns on there and every now and then I save one. Luckily, the patterns themselves are not necessarily in Afrikaans - I struggle a bit with Afrikaans knitting terms! Anyway, that's where I found a link to this pattern, Bamboozle Cropped Lace Cardigan, designed by Gail Tanquary for Crystal yarns:
I'm not using Crystal yarns, of course, so I've had to make a few changes, but I think the lacy pattern is showing up well with the crepe wool yarn:
