Hitofude Cardigan Complete


I wish I could squeal and ooze on and on about this sweater.  I LOVE it.  To be honest I was skeptical about even liking it.  I'm  not a shrug wearer and I tend to knit traditional cardigans.  This sweater is the exception.  Maybe I created the perfect storm pairing a wool/silk yarn blend with this pattern.  Whatever the reason, I love the drape, the swing and the fit.


Just so you know I am getting relaxed and comfortable with each of you.  I did not edit out my neck wrinkles, but I wanted to.  I am just thinking it's me and who I am. If you are on the fence about whether or not you want to knit this, I say do it.  Trust me, you will love the results.


I will be knitting another one of these but with longer sleeves.  Not just yet, but I am thinking about the idea and in a darker yarn color.  Ravelry notes are here

  27. Really the shrug looks stunning Karen, but next time put your mug in the shot because I am sure it will look stunning on you and a happy proud smile will go a long way to making your beautiful cardi even more special. Lovely effort. I still cant get over how quickly you produce these things

  37. It's beautiful it's been fun watching you knit it up. Alas, I'm still on the wrong side of the fence for this one, ha!

  38. I'm sorry I was out of town when you first posted this!!!!!!! IT IS GORGEOUS!!!!! I love mine to bits, and I, too, am sure I'll knit this again. I think I want mine in that wonderful limey green......maybe we can have another knit-along again sometime!!!! (It really was fun, and like you----i'm just slightly having cardi-withdrawal!!!)

  41. Stunning knit! That color looks beautiful on you.

  42. Oh my! Your Hitofude is luscious! That yellow-green just sings. My own Hitofude is in a totally different colour, and dark, and consists so far of only nine pattern repeats, but I'm full steam ahead. If mine turns out as well as yours has (and Steph's at Woolythyme) I'll be thrilled.
