Blueberry Cropped Cardigan

medium_heath_cardi.jpg

Yes, I know..it look like the Blue Sky Cropped Cardigan. It happen when I came across Green Apple , she have the Blue Sky Cropped Cardigan done few month ago and I love it. However, the actual pattern is knit with bulky yarn, which I can't wear it in tropical weather. I figure I could do a similar cardigan with different yarn, so I start off with a simple top down raglan increase and change to 1 x 1 rib when it reach the shaping. Basically, I work the entire piece by guess my way out, I don't even have to do any waist shaping at all, 1 x 1 ribbing do the magic. I used discontinue Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran for this cropped cardigan, it is a nice yarn to work on, but is a bit scratchy on skin before it block. I like the way it give a bit of weight but not too bulky, is just nice for the air-condition room. I glad it turn out exactly what I want, except the sleeve..I think it should be slightly longer.

Yarn : Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran
Yardage: 2 skein ( about 438 yards)
Needle : 6 mm

Very cute. Love it. I also love the way you can just look at patterns and remake them. That is a true knitting and artist gift

I wish I could knit as well as you! But haven't got enough patience to learn it. I knit soo slow, that it makes me bored before I get a ready garment)
I like your cardigan, it looks very stylish and the color is great!
