Phoenix Rising

Rising from the ashes of the lamented Rosebud Cardigan (you didn't know I had frogged it did you?) comes a new cardigan - The Phoenix. Designed - mostly - by me and incorporating one of the stitch patterns from the Rosebud - this cardi fits!

That interesting stitch pattern is the Wheat Ear Rib Stitch. Couldn't work the Rosebud stitch pattern in as this cardi is worked top down and it is vital for that bobble/cable combo to be worked bottom up. I still love this yarn (knitpicks Merino style in Hollyberry), and I still love the Rosebud Cardigan - but I could not make the thing fit.
