9191 Cardigan

The shape and embellishment of this design is intended to make you stop and drop your jaw, and the self-patterning yarn reinforces that drama. The effect would be more regal and less of-the-moment in a solid or heathered precious fibre mix (like Balmoral DK, all wool, alpaca, and silk). Because the sleeves are a wonderful length, the yarn weight an all-season one, the waist nipped in, the armholes curved, and the sleeves have a rounded cap. The magnificent collar is in double seed or moss stitch (two knits on top of two purls).

Firstly, I ran out of yarn and I NEVER run out, let alone by at least half a ball. The collar is therefore not nearly as deep at the back as the sides. I think this is just get awayable with.

Secondly, I don't understand why it is that Sublime's instructions are so utterly crystal clear, if they want you to breathe different they say so, while Sirdar's are very presumptuous. I ended up writing to them several times and although it is true, they wrote back and were helpful, I would much have preferred more detailed instructions. I guess this is because they are putting out hard copy leaflets and they've been morphed into .pdfs rather than the other way around.

I haven't worked out still how to do the collar properly, I think I'll have to sew down the little 'lapel' part at the front.

So, all these gripes.

But in fact, I'm still left with a lovely green jacket, which is a lovely shade of green, and which I love for it's lovely greenness. And the pattern is really very nice, but it would be better not to run out of yarn.

And I'm still going to knit more Sirdar patterns.

Did I mention I have a lovely green jacket now? (!)

Knitting this in a solid colour, spring green. NOT a regal colour but with a white skirt and tank I'm hoping it'll look cute, at any rate. Back finished, so far so good.
