Project

Pink Icelandic Cardi

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My Steeking - I didn't use Lopi yarn. My yarn was 30% wool and 70% acrilic. So I used a sewing machine and then crocheted before cutting down the middle. It didn't unravel - Phew!!! I also quite like the pearl buttons - I noticed nobody else used it and I like pearls anyway so it made sense. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was my first time doing clothing in the round and I found it great. It did get heavy towards the end. I chose to kinit this quite short because I like that look but it was nice to know I could have gone on and on if I wanted. I also changed down a needle size 2 inches after the armhole to get the waist to nip in a little and then I canged back up at the end.
