Sadie



Sadie is done.

This cardigan is knit in pieces and it was the first time I made one like this. There is a back, two fronts and two sleeves. The latter were set-in sleeves and were pretty different to ones I am accustomed to. Lastly, a band to pick up and knit and then piece it all together. Of course, let us not forget all those ends to sew in.

The sweater came out as I imagined and I only made a few simple changes: shortened both the length and sleeves (bracelet length) and knit the bow band a bit differently. It is a loose fit sweater with pretty eyelet rows and a bow to bring it together. I like the texture the eyelets create and the drape. The yarn is a wool/cotton blend and both the wool and pattern is by Rowan (Issue No. 40). The color is called Inky.
