Truly 'Sublime' Cardigan
Posted on Friday the 22nd January 2016 by Three Stories High
My Minerva post this month is a knitted project using the most Sublime yarn. Yes, Sublime 100% Fine Merino. I have made a cardigan for Big Sis to wear to school. I have made this pattern before for my younger daughter and enjoyed making it immensely. The stitch variety makes it an interesting knit. Knitting the back and fronts in one piece to the armholes also makes it easy to keep the pattern going.
I have taken my time with this one, savoured it, enjoyed it, corrected mistakes and I have been rewarded with a beautiful cardigan. It has taken me about three months to do.
I did an extra pattern repeat for the body length and knit the sleeves a bit longer than I needed to by calling her name every few days and measuring her up to the sleeves.
She comes, she is good like that.
The pattern is from Sirdar. I have been a faithful user of Sirdar children's patterns for my girls, they are both stylish and modern with great instructions. This one is from 'Cosy Haylofter Knits' I fell in love with the styling, I mean, I would love to wear that whole outfit myself.
So we tried a little copy cat modelling - this is my farm girl.
Thanks Minerva for this sublime yarn and your continued sponsored generosity.
Love from Jo and farm girl Heidi xxx
