The magic of the Ravelry Year of Projects Group!
I couldn’t let another week go by without an YOP update.
So I buckled down and finished my Moonbow Slouchy Knit Cardigan by Mama in a Stitch.
Now, a few things.
I honestly forget I’m tall, so this is not slouchy on me (notice I left that part out in my post title).
In the designer photos, the cardigan hits much lower on her…more tops of thighs.
Mine hits at my hips.
Due to that, I’m not sure I want to put on the pockets.
I have them made with a pop of color for added detail, I may add them at a later date.
Making this cardigan, I also realized I’m not a fan of seaming (especially bulky weight yarn).
I appreciate that seaming makes the cardigan a convenient travel project as you can take just the panel/part you are working on.
I’m just not a fan of the bulky seam inside.
So those are the slight negatives.
I love the aesthetic details the garter ridge on the panels made…such delightful detail on the sides and arms.
The pattern was clearly written and easily followed.
I used Lion Brand Hue + Me Yarn by Two of Wands.
I love the yarn, beautiful colors and so warm…there are lots of free patterns available on the site as well.
Now, opposed to my other cardigan WIP (with the same yarn), this cardigan was knit on 10mm needles and I really like the result…My Audrey Cardigan is knit on 6mm and is a much tighter fabric which will make the cardigan a winter coat rather than a wear inside cardigan.
I have a feeling this will become my “run out the bus to get the kids” cardigan come fall.
Recommended pattern and yarn.
