My current work in progress:

Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry, knit from Miss Babs  Kaweah in the Parchment, Old Gold, Petrified Forest, and Espresso colorways, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.

Rose Cardigan

I finished my Rose Cardigan Friday night:

Rose050618 331x500 Rose Cardigan

This was a very fun project with an interesting construction: it is knit in four quadrants, which are seamed together. It’s worked sideways, starting at the wrist, and incorporates 4 colorways, each one fading into the next. The pattern, available on Ravelry here, was very detailed and very well-written.

I increases the rate of increase on the sleeves so they would be a bit looser than the pattern directs. The only other mod I made was to pick up stitches along the back neck, work a row, then bind off to add some stability to the neck before attaching the neckband.

So all in all, a successful project, and I actually like the completed cardigan too!

Loki is calling me to play with him, so I’ll show you my new project next time.

    Beautiful knitting, looks like a very wearable sweater.

  2. Lovely. It looks really comfy. I hope I remember that trick next time I need to attach a neckband.

    I really like the colors you picked. I’m going to have to try some new ones, mine all seem the same. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Beautiful! I love the colors! And, although the picture doesn’t show it so well, I like the idea of a wider sleeve than the original pattern. Thanks for sharing!
