And a happy Tuesday to you!
There is no more sun than a week ago, but a bit of snow has brightened things up considerably and I have pictures!
My latest obsession? A free cardigan pattern from ravelry:
I am in love!
First, I used the sport yarn the pattern calls for, but with my favorite 5mm hook.
I made the first ten rows as written, then chose my favorite lace to finish the body. Instead of a 0-3 mos size cardigan, I have a 9 mos in pretty spring colors for my sweet twins! They need a bit of finishing, but here we are so far:
I am nearly out of yarn, I may need to use something else for the edging…
I experiented with worsted weight next, which has given me a 12 mos size, about a 22 inch chest.
Now that I’ve finished my busy weekend, perhaps I can hook that second sleeve!
I just love lots of color! Weaving the ends, not so much 🙂 but they will get tucked in eventually…
Isn’t it marvelous what can be done with one simple pattern?
A man-size is next…a 22 inch chest becomes 44 if I double the pattern, yes? I may up the hook size to 6mm just to make certain it fits through the shoulder.
There will be some fpdc in that one, stay tuned!
