My Yellow Cardigan


This sweater was so quick and easy to knit that I don’t really have much to say about it! I shouldn’t be too surprised that it was pain free because I’ve knit a few sweaters using this construction method, but I usually change my mind about some design detail and rip everything out when I’m half finished. I wish all of my projects turned out like this.


It turned out even better than I expected. My sketches were a little ugly because I was trying to cram so many details on a little drawing, but the cables work on the actual sweater. I really love it.

  6. I absolutely love this sweater, I adore the cable design in the front! I love how fast you churn out your designs. I wish I knit as fast as you do. You should consider doing some knitting tutorials on YouTube. I would love to learn from you!

    1. Haha! Thanks, but I’m not really that quick of a knitter. Cropped cardigans made in worsted weight yarn don’t involve a lot of stitches so they work up quickly even for slower knitters. I also haven’t had much of a social life since I moved to Seattle so all of my free time is spent knitting.

  7. It’s beautiful! Congrats on finishing it 馃檪

  8. omg I love everything about this sweater. So beautiful.

  9. Sooooo… Can we have a post on your blocking methods? Did it actually take a week to dry – or did you just wait till Monday to post..?
    Every time I decide, okay THIS time I’m going to block something, I always regret it! I end up stretching the piece out too far, all my shaping goes awry and I end up shaking my fists at the knitting gods. I bet you’ve got a great, full of common household items, technique…

    1. Blocking itself didn’t take a week, but I live in Seattle so it takes 2-3 days for a sweater to dry. I waited for a sunny day to block it, and I don’t blog on weekends.

      I don’t have a fancy blocking method. I just hand wash my sweater, lay it flat making sure that the button bands line up and leave it to dry. I can’t be bothered to pin my sweaters every time I wash them, and you should block your sweaters and swatches in the same way that you clean them so your sweater always looks the same. I think you might be over thinking blocking.

  10. A lovely design. I like the deep V in front and the interesting cable work. It works perfectly with the cute dress you’re wearing too. Very nicely done!

  11. That’s a really interesting cable design. And a cute cardigan!
