My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Rose Cardigan

I finished my Rose Cardigan Friday night:

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!
