Portulaca Cardigan & winner!

We have a winner!  Congratulations to Suzy, I’ve just emailed you to let you know.  As soon as I get your mailing details the yarn and needles for Rose Song are on their way to you! (If I don’t hear from her by Sunday I’ll choose a new winner…)

My craftsy cabled class will be up pretty soon so I though I’d give you a preview of the design I created for the class – Portulaca cardigan.

The cardigan is knit using one of my favourite yarns, Soft Donegal, in a vivid green colour.  I believe Craftsy will even be stocking the yarn which for anyone in the US should be a big advantage as I don’t know of anywhere else that you can buy it directly at the moment in the US.

This cardigan uses a combination of cables that I love together; it feels as though they’re weaving their way up the front of the cardigan!

The cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up with waist shaping at the side.  Then the sleeves are knit in the round and the yoke is completed in one piece with raglan shoulder shaping.

In the class I work through measuring yourself so that you can ensure the waist shaping hits you at the right spot.  There is also some details on how to increases or decrease the amount of waist shaping.

It was a really enjoyable cardigan to knit, engaging but not too difficult if you pay attention to your cables!  For the moment it will be exclusively from Craftsy so the only way to get the pattern will be to sign up to the course when it goes live.

  1. WOW and OMG I love that and will be signing up for the class and would love to get the same yarn too.

    It is sooo pretty, love the cabling and how much the yarn and color compliment the pattern.

    Looks like it is going to be the summer of knitting Stolen Stitches cuz I signed up to do you Ravi KAL too just waiting for yarn to come and then the first pattern clue.

  2. Just beautiful! I love cables, I love tweed and I love green. The sweater looks really nice with your jean skirt. Another one of my favorite combinations. Is the class online? Wow, I don’t want to miss this one!

  3. Love the name. I haven’t seen Portulaca since I was a kid growing up in Detroit. Love the cables! I can see how the sweater got its name. :o)
    I’ve got to get that Ravi going so I can do this one….

  4. I purchased some Soft Donegal directly recently and have been waiting for the perfect project – looks like I found it & will be signing up for your Craftsy class – thanks :)
