Truth be told, I’m not so crazy about the jumper on this twin set, it seems a bit long and shapeless. What I’m head over heels about is the cardigan!
B&W Jumper Image:
Kinda long, kinda shapeless (and I dislike the long armscye on this also). This is just my personal preference. I prefer styles shaped like this one. Being short, I know it won’t work on my body, but I could totally see this working on you long-torsoed gals.
The cardigan on the other hand is swoon-worthy:
Lots of cute buttons: check
Cinched waist with ribbing: check
Easy to knit with just enough stitch detail: check!
This pattern is made to fit a 34-36 inch busted gal and isn’t multi-sized. :( But this one could be resized quite easily after you know your knitting gauge.
This pattern calls for a slightly heavy weight fingering yarn with 7.5 sts per inch and 10 rows per inch.
The rows of what looks like stripes, is achieved by working 2 rows in moss stitch (alternating k1,p1’s). And that’s really it. Oh… and the waist section is done using a ribbed k1,p1 for 20 rows or 2 inches.
What do you guys think? I think it’s a perfect cardigan for the upcoming fall season!
As always, be sure to drop me a line if there’s a particular pattern you’d like to see up here. I got them all! :)
Hope you all have a great, long Labor Day weekend. See you next Tuesday after the break. :)
