Apologies for the poor photos. MrC was on his way to the boat and in a hurry to get there (now that the winter's over he needs to get going on the annual maintenance). I had asked him if the cardigan looked ok and he said 'yes', but after seeing the photos I see that I'm all skew-iff! I obviously can't dress myself!
Effortless Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. Top down, raglan shaping.
A few points:
The sleeves are 16 inches. I'm nsot sure what length that makes them - bracelet? Certainly not wrist length.
The fronts are very wide. Wide enough for a wraparound! I'm sure that I could have kntited this with narrower fronts and used the extra yarn to lengthen the sleeves.
The borders (bottom, front edgels and the collar - which is super lojng as it takes into account the wide fronts - are really long. If you don't like 2x2 ribbing then it's not the cardigan for you. As I was counting yardage for Mad Dash I can tell you that th collar alonge took up 98 yards of yarn!
It's very easy to wear, but there's probably a bt too much frontage for me to potter around in the house (thinking of seting myself alight whilst cooking!) but overall I like it.
The yarn is Skein Queen's Oosie, which is put up in 250g skeins. I sued just over two skeins, but probably could have used just eh two. The colour is Holly Berries, which I bought in the December update, and cast on over the Christmas period as my Christmas knitting. Lovely yarn. Springy and woolly and warm. And I can wear it next to my skin, not scratchy! I suspect the springiness is why the sleeves are looking shorter than they are. As I have another skein left I'll certianly lengthen them before next Autumn. And buy more Oosie!
