I am not posting about the nursery rhyme (although it's one of my favorites) but my latest creation .....
.... a little round yoke cardigan knitted with 2 skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts cashmere/merino. I love the stitch pattern that I used in my Cathedral Shawl that I wanted to use it on a cardigan. This k3tog stitch produces a lovely effect & with all of them in a row, they resembled little stars.
The cardigan is knitted from the top down (of course) & the increases for the yoke are incorporated into the 12 row pattern. Once there is enough width for the sleeves, the sleeves are casted off. Then the body is joined to knit back & forth until the required length. Right & left bands of the cardigan are also knitted on at the same time.
This is a quick knit as I worked out all the calculations in the beginning & I could try it on as I go. I love this cardigan & it fitted perfectly. I would have liked it a little longer but as I have only 2 skeins, this is the maximum length that I can get to.
Anyway, now that I have all the calculations done, I can easily knit another one & maybe with long sleeves for next winter.
I love the color of this yarn, so deep & rich but not easy to photograph. I must have taken more than 50 photos & I still can't get it right.
.... I just love those little stars & can't get enough of them.
