If ever there was a season that calls for hygge, it is now. Creating a coziness and warmth and light and appreciation for the good things in life-- I am clinging to these. I'm planning get togethers with friends, and small treats. I ordered really kickass warm new boots, so I won't skip walks in the cold.  I'm stacking the cozy knit project cast-ons  like planes waiting to take off at O'Hare. One of them is this Camurac Cardigan.
Like everything in Drop Dead Easy Knits, it is stylish but not fussy. Aran weight, good and slouchy with pockets (love me pockets on a cardi). Detailing on the hem and lapels that are fun to knit. I have a store bought cardi that I wear all the time that is similar--except my Camurac is going to be so. much. nicer. And it will be a cozy and fairly quick knit. Win-win.
See what I mean about the pockets? Another great design from Kirsten Kapur. It should have a hygge stamp of approval on it.

Yes, yes, and more yes! I don't have any yarn in my stash (I mean really, how on earth is that even a possibility!!) And, this cardigan is a must knit. So, I think a bit of retail therapy is in order! XO
