The Perfect Fit Seamless Crazy Lace Cardigan »
Type of item: Clothing
Stylecraft Aran with wool 400gm Peat
What was your inspiration?
My inspiration long country walks, originally wanted long sleeves - but it was too hot to wear. Made the buttons to match, I am very pleased with the Dorset buttons. I'm on a bit of a weight loss thing, so designed to be skin tight so that it is still wearable two sizes down.
FYI: Size UK 20 - fits where it touches!!
What are you most proud of?
I love the lace work, shows up best on the back. We had a break in the rain so ran outside to take some photos, and boy was it sunny.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just go for it, Don't be afraid to unpick.
I've been thinking: I belive the crew neck on my chest has the same effect as a V neck, but I think I prefer the look. Next time I fancy trying an edging rather than the rib at the neck line. There's a gorgeious 'ribbed flounce 'on page 118 of 'The very easy guide to lace knitting' by Lynne Watterson. I might be giving that a go - especially as I still have more balls of the Stylecraft Aran to play with!
