Cozy Cardigan

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Getting the button band to fit properly with the buttons. So many times, sweaters are too large around the neck and constantly slip. This pattern helps eliminate that struggle. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I were to do this again, I would use the lighter color around the yoke and have the darker color along the sleeves and around the body.

What you will need

  • Hand spun alpaca and some commercial alpaca

pretty, I am doing something like this for the celtic cables class.

I signed up for the Celtic Cable class on Sunday. She presentes the bottom up appraoch for seamless kniting while Myra does the top down approach. I'm interested in finding out which works best for me
