Dolly cardigan update

Posted on

The cardigan is making slow but steady progress and I’m so pleasedwith it so far! I have never knitted anything this complex before (ok so hardly complex but it is for me!) and there are a few minor mistakes but overall I’m happy so far. Now I think the sleeves may be a bit more tricky but I’ll try and work it out (oh thank-you You Tube)

It’s the perfect size for a little learning project and an excuse to use up left over wool too. The ravelry pattern is here and it’s very simple to follow.

Taking part in this week’s Yarn Along from Small Things an Crafting on from Frontier Dreams

(PS. I’m still reading Anita Shreve’s ‘Rescue’ and found it hard to get into at the begining but I’m now hooked!)

  3. I made the same little cardi for a granddaughter at Christmas. It’s such a sweet little sweater, and I love the pretty color you’re using. I kind of like knitting doll clothes – a finished project so much faster than making the real thing for big people ;).
