- Pattern: Mama Vertebrae, Project Page
- Yarn: Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Worsted in Patterson Park
- Size: F
- Needle size:
- US8 for body
- US7 for bottom ribbing. I may rip this out and do again with a US6. I want 6’s for the band, and probably sleeves. We’ll see where I am on yarn chicken.
I have a lot to say about this pattern, and none of it is good. I’d say I was tricked out of $4, but in reality I just paid the Idiot Tax. Here I was thinking it was a well-written pattern, mostly due to numerous good FO’s. I’m very disappointed but I’m sure the end result will be good as well. I discuss further on my project page (you must be a Ravelry member to see) but basically just be warned on this pattern.
The only tiny plus with this is also one of it’s cons: It’s written for four different yarn weights. So if you’re feeling cheap and only want to pay $4 for a badly written pattern in four weights instead of $5-7 per weight, go ahead. It takes around an hour to re-write for your chosen weight and size, if you’re up to it.
I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. There are far better written open front cardigans out there.
