FO Friday: Modified Aidez

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season! I'm on the last few days of my winter break from school and am getting ready to head back to Boston.

Below is my last FO from December, but I didn't get around to taking pictures until very recently. I have finally finished my Aidez cardigan! I followed MariaOlson's mods to the T and I love it. While I love the cables of the original (and will probably make another using the original pattern before too long), I wanted to try the collar cables and center back cable of MariaOlson's version.

I had a lot of fun knitting this, and it really only took me two months (which is pretty good for me when I'm in school). I used Cascade Ecological Wool as many others have, but unfortunately needed a little over 2 skeins. My cardigan is a little too long for my taste, and I wish I had made it a bit shorter as it also would have saved me from having to buy a whole other skein just for a little bit of yarn.

This is my first raglan-style sweater and it is the style I definitely prefer. I learned a lot from knitting this and I am looking forward to knitting another one. This is also a sweater I know I'll wear (which doesn't often happen). Though it's not perfect, its coziness makes up for it. 


  1. GORGEOUS sweater!! you did an awesome job on it, I'm impressed!

    I didn't know you were practically a pro at this, keep up the awesome projects :D
