Hitofude Cardigan Progress Week Two


I've made significant progress on my hitofude cardigan, the sleeve section is completed and so is the one by one ribbing.  However I was zooming along with my knit, gleefully watching Madmen and trying to see what the fuss was about that show and I made some kind of mistake.  You know the one where you cannot figure out at all.

My penance was to UNKNIT about four rows, oh the agony and horror!  Unknitting is the saddest of sad events and yes, I know I could have taken the sweater off the needles and ripped quickly but then I would not know where I was on this tricky pattern.

Unknit I did, and fudged, yep fudged so that the lace design matched up to the back and added two stitches here, one stitch there discretely.  I have no idea what I did wrong, but I'm blaming it on watching tv and the Madmen series on netflix.

Today, I am on track and working on the skirt of the cardigan.  All is lining up as it should and I think my fudging is nearly invisible, mission accomplished.



Care to join in the knitting of this cardigan?  Join us!  Either here or over at Woolythyme (Steph).

  5. I was knitting along listening to a book on tape this a.m. and went 4 rows past where I should have stopped to start my patterning. Getting ready to (hopefully) do a quick frog back if I can figure out how to pick up my ends correctly. Argh.

  11. I love. love. love that color, Karen!! I ended up with too many stitches and fudged at the shift from sleeve/neckline to lower part... but, it came out okay. I think I was a bit to distracted... ;) Yours is looking beautiful! blessings ~ tanna

  12. It is such a stunning cardigan-can't wait to see your finished knit. And it's such a pretty colour (non-ripping back vibes winging their way to you) :)

  14. It is really looking good Karen! I think I will most definitely try my hand at this pattern, right now is just too busy and crazy around here to even start anything that I really need to concentrate on. East peasy things for me until things calm down a bit.

  15. Ugh. I just did the same thing! I'm not sure what I did. And it was only the first row. I counted and counted and counted as I cast on for the sweater. And some how I am over by 4 stitches. I've thought about starting over, but am putting it down for tonight and will reconsider next week when I have more time to sit and knit. Maybe MO while C is in school.
