Shell Cardigan

A friend gave me several skeins of Tufutsie yarn.  She said she got it at a flood sale on impulse.  She knew that I had made socks with it, but I really didn’t think I’d be making another eight or ten pair.  What wanted was a light weight cardigan.  I have lots and lots of tiny balls of leftover sock yarn.  This extra yarn was really inspiring me.  I was considering entrelac or mitered squares and I played with different needles and made samples.  I finally realized that this wasn’t what I wanted.  While flipping through books and magazines, It came to me.  Shells.  It’s been years.  I knew I had some patterns somewhere.  So I went on-line.  I found four places.  Lucky for me, I had three.  I pulled them out, knit samples and made up my mind.
