My cabled cardigan is growing and looking beautiful! I'm so pleased with the way the cables and textures are arranged with this design.
I've finished the body of the cardigan, as well as the sleeves. Now, it's time to make the yoke and center panels. And I still need to choose just the right pretty buttons for it.
Here's how it looks right now:
Nice! I can't believe I'm going to have such a gorgeous cardigan in my wardrobe. And it all started with just yarn and knitting needles. Amazing.
My sister's cardigan is going faster than mine, since she's doing the shorter version. She's already finished the yoke! Doesn't it look FABULOUS?!
The hardest part of this design is all the different "picking up stitches" sections, but after you get them figured out, it's not so bad. The most time-consuming part is knitting the body. That took FOREVER!
I had to use my vintage dpns to make the sleeves. I love those old knitting needles. :) Too bad they are no longer available.
Here's a view of the pretty detail on the sleeve. Fancy!
I think the yoke and center panels should go fast. Here's hoping!
