On 10th of this month, I showed you a knitting project, actually begun on 29th September of a long plain cardigan I’m making for myself. It’s a stash-busting project, using some acrylic yarn I’ve had in my stash for a number of years and a Sirdar Hayfield pattern bought a couple of years ago.
Since my last update, I knitted both fronts, and both sleeves, remaining consistent with my raglan decreases. And, after watching a couple of videos on youtube, to remind myself on how to assemble my pieces . . . I’ve sewn the 4 raglan seams – yay!
Here’s a photo of the first one. I’m so pleased with how it turned out! This photo shows you the true colour of the yarn.
Anyway . . . next job will be to knit the neckband and button bands. I put back & sleeve stitches onto stitch holders, rather than doing the cast off as pattern suggested. Will just need to increase evenly by a few stitches on those parts, when also picking up on the 2 fronts at neck line. Am very optimistic that I’ll have a finished cardigan to keep me snug, by the end of the month!
