Ok I just couldn’t wait to show you all my finished knit.
It was so nice out yesterday that I blocked it out in the sun during the day, sewed buttons on and took pictures during the evening.
This was a test knit for Andi of Untangling Knots using Cascade 220.
I knew I wanted to knit this when I first saw glimpses of Andi designing it back in 2010. An interesting construction for a cardigan where you knit half the back, join the two half knit fronts to the back at the shoulder seams and then knit the body together. I think this is my favourite way to knit a cardigan, it all seems to come together so quickly and you can try it on as you go.
I love the lace panels and rolled up cuffs,
The decreases flow together with the knit stitches making it very polished. I can’t wait to knit more of Andi’s designs! Miette has actually been in my queue for quite some time and its a freebie so that may be in the works sometime soon.
The butterfly buttons turned out to be the perfect off set to this wonderful cardi.
This is a 3 season cardigan and will get lots of wear Fall, Winter and Spring!
