Show and Tell: Cartagena Yoke Sweater

Nicky Klein (Knitcky on Ravelry) made a luscious Cartagenayoke sweater using Lotus Mimi.

She had this to say about it.

The pattern isn’t too challenging. I decided to try it out based on all of the flattering ravelry pictures. I’ve avoided using patterns requiring double strands of yarn up until now, but it really isn’t so bad!

I chose the yarn because I like to try out different fibers, and I had never used mink before. It’s by far the softest and warmest yarn I have ever used and I highly recommend it.

The shirred pattern looks gossamer and sort of feathery. I’m really happy with the way it came out and have received a lot of compliments.

Whoever is modeling Nicky's sweater has a beautiful figure. I need a model for a new line of cardigans. How can I reach her?
