It has been awhile since I blogged. Not that I stopped knitting. I was so busy knitting this Rose cardigan. One lesson learned was gauging. This cardigan has turned out really big even I skipped half of the body on each quadrant.
I used Primrose sock yarn (from dark to light): Big Gruesome, Landslide, Embers, and Dior. I bought a fading set from Fancy Tiger Crafts that came with one skein per color. I had to order more Embers and Dior from a separate vendor. Unfortunately, even with the same name, the colors didn’t match.
As you can see, I did some modification to the collar band. I added buttons and buttonholes.
For the waist band, I used the fading colors instead of one color.
I’ve learned so much from this pattern. Back loop increase, doing different types of stitches in a row. I finally feel like a serious knitter!
