I've had a plan for a really personal pattern for quite on time and the process to make one and further to turn it to a pattern has been long...  I just checked my bookkeeping and I casted my first Hjördis on the needles pretty much one year ago.  It was finished in December and the original cardigan in Tukuwool fingering looks like this:

I casted on the second version even before finishing the first one, 'cause I wanted to try it in two colours. Not a good idea! So not my thing and required a lot of concentration 'cause I wanted it also to bee seamless and that meant two coloured brioche with sort rows as well as intarsia edges. This version was not the relaxing almost brainless knitting that I was in mood for. So it took quite a while to get it finished and I got it done only 'cause I had a deadline: it had to be done before flying abroad to visit a friend to whom I made it as a present! The cardigan is made in some kind of wool blend (forest green) and a mohair blend (dirty peach) I'm though very pleased with the finished cardigan:

This summer I got a vision of a longer version that I just had to cast on right away! And I'm in love with my bright mohair blend cardigan:
