The little cardie

13:03

So what happened to the little cardie I wrote about earlier? My godson got it for his birthday in september! :)

Green cardi

Just when I had started it I got the idea to make a throw for a wedding present, so it had to go into hibernation for a bit. When I got back to it, there was something wrong about it, don't remember what now, but I ripped it up and started over. After that it was a really fast knit.  The pattern is from Garnstudio - found here - and I used yarn from Garnstudio as well, the Drops Karisma superwash.

I made some changes compared to pattern.

Front: reversed one of the side cables to mirror the one on the other side.

Back: I changed a bit more than just reversing one of the cables for symmetry. I put the middle back cables just next to each other, and put the extra stitches from that into the garter area, as one twisted knit stitch on each side.

I also let the cables continue up over the hood in this manner:
I kept the 5-knit edge, then i put in the 3-cable pattern from the body, and made the rest seed stitch, as it turned out I really liked the seed stitching more than I had expected.
so, pattern went, k5, p2, M1(pattern), p2, seed stitching, p2, M2 (pattern), p2, k5.

It was a fun knit, but as it turns out I still need to learn a bit more about gauge, and to swatch, as my little godson will probably have to grow a bit until it will fit him. :)
