On to my fourth knitted garment. Its another Andi Sutterlund pattern called Miette Cardigan. Miette is a free pattern download available on Ravelry. It is a cropped cardigan with 3/4 sleeves and eyelet details. This was my first go at doing some lacework in the sense that I used yarnovers for the first time.
I used a yarn bought from loveknitting.com during a sale (its no longer available now though). Red Heart Niki is an aran weight knitting yarn which is 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool and machine-washable. Its a dark brown colour, the yarn itself feel very lovely and soft.
Here are my Ravelry Notes…..
16 May 2015. Need a cropped cardigan for my summer dresses. Cast on 47 stitches. Making the smallest size.
Using Red Heart Niki Aran in brown.
12 June 2015. Body and one sleeve done. Struggled with purling in the back. 3 balls of yarn used so far. Hope to finish by July.
16 June. Right button band started. Must finish by Friday….Neck band row 2. Just realised I dont have buttons
Finished. Waiting to get buttons then will block.
Blocked and buttons sewn on :-).
So I finished this cardigan in June of 2015 and its been sitting in its Morrissons carrier bag until October when I decided to get my knitting house in order. Over a year!!! Argh! I know that I lost steam (again) and got excited to cast on a Marion cardigan. Then I just forgot about it. Not cool Hila.
Anyhow I finished this off so long ago I cant remember exact details except to say that it knitted up quickly. The finished item didnt look like much but when I blocked it I was pleasantly surprised that my eyelets weren’t nearly as bad as I thought.
I like it despite an obvious mistake with one sleeve. Its very comfortable and keeps me warm.
Thanks for dropping by! Until next time – happy hooking!
Peace and love,
