Miette


Pattern: Miette by Andi Satterlund (free Ravelry download)
Yarn: YarnArt Summer 150 g and YarnArt Violet 90 g, held together
Needle: 4 mm, 3.5 mm button bands and neckline
Time to knit: 11 days

This is a top-down cropped raglan cardigan with a pretty lace detail, quite easy and pleasant to knit. For full disclosure, I should mention that I did make several mistakes in the lace, all of which I went back and corrected, because I'm such a crazy person. My gauge was quite different from the pattern's original (20 st and 25 rows for a 4 inch square), so to get the smallest size I actually knitted the medium 38". But not quite - the sleeves felt narrow, so I added 6 sts to each of them (53 total) and gradually reduced them to 40 sts. before the lacy part.



As I mentioned in an earlier post, I read carefully all of Gail's notes on Miette and I would recommend them to anyone planning to make this cardigan. She's provided many useful tips and among other things now I'll never have to wonder any more where to place the buttonholes on my knitted clothes, because I already know that WOMEN ARE ALWAYS RIGHT :))))

  2. This is gorgeous! Gosh, it's making me want an inky-blue one for myself! (although I'm not sure if yours is blue or black? those colors are so hard to capture, aren't they?)

    Thanks for the shout-out too!

    1. Thank you, Gail! The color is black, or two shades of black because of the two threads. I'm into an experimental phase now :), my new project is knitted again with two threads with close colors.
