I had a spare hour on Sunday and I decided it was time to take pics and a quick video of my finished Linus cardigan! I did modify this only by doing garter stitch instead of ribbing and making it a shawl collar. I love the coziness of a shawl around my neck when it’s cold. So here’s a video talking all about it and more details and pics below.
Here’s everything that I talked about in this video.
- Linus Cardigan
- As If Tee
- Jellybean’s Rainbow Tee
- My Unicorn Eyeglasses
- ShelliCan’s Pins and T-shirts
- Web’s Knitting Retreat Recap
- Jessica’s Rhinebeck sweater
And as promised, here are pics of the full sweater. I think this might be my favorite cardigan I’ve ever made. But I also feel like that whenever I finish a project. I think it’s because of the rainbow yarn with the grey and how I decided to change the pattern. Also, for anyone curious about how I blocked this, I put it in a delicates bag and threw it in the washing machine on the rinse and spin cycle and then let it air dry.
It’s a dropped sleeve construction, which isn’t something I do that often but I like the ease it gives in the shoulders and back.
How can you not be happy when you wear knits with all the colors?
So this will be the sweater you can find me in at Rhinebeck, will I see you there?
