Those of you who take an interest in crafts and Knitting, I know will be wondering how my knitting came along.. This was how I left it on my last update. As I said it was the simplest pattern that I think I ever knitted, only shaping the sleeves. I used basic Knit . the reason being, I could do without it being complicated as I was watching Wimbledon Tennis on TV at the time. 🙂 ..So for any beginners out there this would be an ideal pattern to start.
The markers of light coloured wool are for the sleeve placement.
Well now I can show you the completed Cardigan that I made for myself. I joined up the shoulders Once the shoulders were joined I then knitted the front bands with one button hole on one side . I picked up evenly stitches around the neck, knitting a couple of rows and then I crocheted a frill to act as collar..
Then I crocheted a fancy easy little frill to match along the edge of the sleeves, then joined the sleeves up their sides along with the sides of the cardigan..
Next did a fancy frill to match around the hem of the cardigan and pinned back the collar to form a lapel, tacked it in place with the same yarn. And lastly I sewn on the button.. Easy..
So this is now how it looks..
It is warm and heavy, as it is knitted in cotton yarn with a thread that goes around it. Difficult to see on these photo’s …
Until next time.. And BE Happy in what ever it is you are doing..
