Sandy Cardigan

Did I mention this design is from Big Girl Knits. Here are a couple more shots. I wish there were more hours in a day so I could knit to my heart's content.

I am working the short rows on the lower left side now. Once I work up to the armhole area I will switch to knitting all the way around, and the short row shaping will be on top to make a sleeve cap.

After that shaping it is just the simple decreases of working down on a sleeve. In the end there will only really be the two arm seams to sew. Each piece is knit onto the previous. A very clever design I must say. It was designed by Emma Crew.

The wool I am using is Vero, made in Italy for Naturally (variegated stuff) and the deeper green wool is Schachenmayr Nomotta Mega. I love the two together. Originally I planned to work it all in the variegated and thought it would be too much striping in every direction.

Good call eh?


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed cardigan on you. Hope this long weekend has given you plenty of time to knit, relax, and renew.

  2. Hi-
    I'm currently making this sweater and think I found a mistake. When it comes to the Shaped Side Panels, I believe the calculations are incorrect. (did the math...only 4 sts to be cast on...don't think that is right!) Did you have any problems with it? If so, how did you fix it?
