Notes: This is a shop model for Green Planet Yarn, and in the last picture it's proudly displayed behind the counter at the shop. It took longer than planned but came out quite nice. The cardigan is designed to be worn open in the front, with 5 or 6 inches gap between the fronts. The yarn is new at the shop, an easy care (machine washable) wool blend in a large range of colors. The body is knitted in one piece bottom up to the armhole, and sleeves are knitted in the round, then the pieces are connected together, decreased to the collar. The cable band is knitted with the body and sewn together on the back of the neck. There are 14 stitches on each side of the underarm that I grafted (proudly), but probably no one will ever notice!

Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blogTami's blog, and leave me a comment!

Lovely cardigan--your sample would make me want to knit it. I like the way the stitch pattern goes down the sleeve.

Kathryn Ray said...

The sweater is gorgeous. But I'm confused by the closure... at first I thought it was a short zipper, but now I'm thinking it's a shawl pin going through alternating stitches from each side. ???

Kathryn, there is a shawl pin keeping the fronts together since it's on hanger/mannequin, when it's worn by a human the boobs would take up some of the fabric.

Absolutely beautiful Vivian! That is such a classic style too.

It's a lovely project. I like how the cables along the edges will show when it's worn.

That cardi looks great. I always wear mine with just the top buttons on so a perfect design. That yarn looks like it was great to work with and feel.
