Mystic River



Pattern: Mystic River by DROPS Design
Yarn: Lanoso Alara 50% cotton 50% acrylic, 220 g
Needle: 3.5 mm
Time to knit: 6 days, incl. sewing and buttons

Perfect little summer cardi, I'm extremely happy with it. Knit without modifications and almost no unraveling (but for those unfortunate 13-15 rows after I had made a mistake).
TIPS from second thoughts (if I were to make it again or for those of you, who might want to knit it):
1) Use crochet cast on for the fronts. This will match the knitted cast off of the back.
2) Cast on the new sts for the sleeves with provisional cast on and additional yarn on the row marked with an arrow in diagram M.1.
Then, when you have again reached that row marked with the arrow and it is time to bind off the stitches for the sleeves, graft the sleeves.








It's Friday and so many people are showing their finished work - visit Linda's Creative Friday and Tami's Amis FO Friday
