My favourite cardigan

Crowberry FrontI have the pattern for this lovely cardigan in the shop.  It is from Woolyknit and it is called Crowberry.

I really like the drapey shape and unfinished edges on the sleeves and the bottom edge.  There is also that gorgeous  cable decoration on the front.  I’d also like to have hair like the model, but that is not part of the pattern!

The main body is knitted from the top down, with an i -cord cast off.  The sleeves are knit in the round onto the body – so no seaming to do afterwards.

It is designed for DK yarn,  either supersoft BlueFaced Leicester or rustic Diggle DK, which has an interesting nep in the yarn.

I have some kits with the pattern and the yarn needed, at a discounted price at the moment.  There is also free postage for a limited period.  So why not treat yourself to a new project for the summer?

About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
