Pink Cardigan Complete
I thoroughly enjoyed knitting this top down cardigan and not once did I get bored. There was a lot of details to keep track of during the body of the sweater. Shaping, button hole making and pleating on the side seams kept me eagerly knitting away.
Because of all the little construction details, I would say this is not a beginner sweater pattern. Definitely give it a try if you understand sweater construction and have knit a top down sweater before.
I think I will be knitting this sweater pattern again in a darker yarn, I wanted to cast on right away when this was completed but I did not want to burn out. So I'm waiting a couple of months.
I love the ruching detail at the shoulder seams. The pleating on the side seams adds a lovely touch. While I was doing all of this self photography, Frodo wanted in on the action. So I decided to fulfill his wishes. That is when he wanted down and to run away. Too bad. I snapped him in motion :)
Oh and do you see that line on the arm? Yep, it's the dreaded double pointed needle laddering....Oh well next sweater I think I am knitting flat and seaming. I don't like magic loop, I don't like two circulars, I don't like nine inch circulars (I know I am picky and opinionated!) .
