I probably shouldn't be starting this knit-along yet, since I haven't even decided on a yarn for this, and am not sure when I'll be ordering, but I really love this cardigan I just found and was wondering whether anyone wants to knit it with me!

It's all stockinette, so it looks like a relatively quick knit.

I was thinking of trying Wool of the Andes, or maybe Andean Silk, in Hyacinth. I know it's a totally different content, but is there any reason it wouldn't work? Also, would the cardi look good in such a dark color?

Yay, glad to hear someone will be joining me! I just swatched and got gauge with Wool of the Andes on size 9s. The fabric is a little thin, but as I will always be wearing something underneath anyway, I figure that is ok, and it will probably make it a little drapier, too. It looks nice, and I love the color... but can't decide whether it is too dark for this design.

This is a great looking wrap sweater!  I think a darker color would be very flattering.
