Autumn will be here before we know it, and I have amazed myself by having a cardigan finished already for when the cooler weather comes. It is version 2 of the winter cardigan I made a few months ago, and which turned out to be an absolute godsend when the blizzards came in March.
The mixture of yarns includes a pink flecked cotton and wool mix in place of the grey mohair that I used in the winter cardigan, so it should be just right for cool weather before winter sets in.
This time I thought ahead about the decreasing for the raglan shoulders and ended up with a much neater finish. For the winter cardigan I made the pattern up as I went along, and the stitch didn't match when I had all the pieces on a circular needle.
The buttons are the same as on the last cardigan. I liked them so much when I bought them that I came away with ten rather than just the five I needed at the time.
There is loads of the pink flecked yarn left over. I am itching to make a summer cardigan for next year, but can't decide what colour to use with it. I'm a bit bored of grey now. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I think your flecked pink yarn would look pretty and summery with lavender and/or a creamy yellow. Perhaps a touch of light green? I do welcome hearing from you and I have learned from you as well. Thank you! PattyReplyDelete
Creamy yellow - now that's a colour I hadn't thought of. I'm going shopping later today, so I shall have a fresh look at colours.Delete
