Pattern: Currant Cardigan by Margie Mitchell
Yarn: Alize Lanagold Solids, 50% wool, 50% acrylic, approx. 450 g
Needle: 4 mm, 3.5 mm button bands and neckband
Time to knit: 17 days
Finally, today we managed to organize a very short photosession with my daughter. She was freezing outside without her coat and emphatically refused to take her hat off for the
shooting :) So just a few quick snaps of the cardigan:
1) I began all parts with provisional cast on and after sewing the cardigan I put the live stitches back on the needles and finished them with applied I-cord.
2) For the neck I finally chose a 2x2 rib as for the button bands (alas, I didn't notice that her hair covers the neckline on all the photos :(
3) Because my yarn is thick and my girl - slim, I reduced the cable separations of 3 purl stitches to 2 purl stitches wherever it seemed proper.
And a preview of my next finished object - this photosession was two-in-one :)
