Agatha | Celtic Cast On

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.

Presenting….. Agatha!

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!
