Still working on that cardigan

Ok, so I think that I’ll have that pdf finished in the next few days. The cardigan will be called ‘Ripley’…see if you can figure out why! Here are a few photos until you can get the final pdf.
This cardigan started out as an idea that I test out on a mini-cardigan to see if you could make the front for a cardigan and collar all one piece.

I really liked the end effect so went on to try it in an adult size with Elann Incense in Navy and this was the result.

Now I love this cardigan so much that I wanted to see what it would look like in different yarns, Sue worked a pink version in Manos del Uraguay, very pretty don’t you think?

Finally a few weeks ago I finished an Olive version with Fyberspates Scrumptious kindly donated by Jen. This yarn creates a super lightweight cardigan that just floats.
I enjoyed knitting the second version as much as the first (very unusual for me!), it has a good mixture between fast easy knitting with some interest thrown in so you don’t get bored. I think the Olive version was knit in less than two weeks!

I’ll leave you with a detail of the shoulder decreases from Sue’s pink version.
