FO - Grace Cardigan

Hi everyone, I finally got round to asking Mr Soaring Sheep to take some photos of me in my Grace cardigan so here you go :)

Posing is not my strong point! I'm much more comfortable behind the camera.

I love this mesh pattern on the front and back. It's easy to knit providing you keep track of which row you're on and makes the cardigan that little more special :)

I added a couple of inches extra length to the pattern as well as some increases as well because I've got a long torso and wanted it to finish below the waistband of my jeans. I made the sleeves longer too so they are extra cosy.

The yarn is Rowan pure wool in the Framboise colourway. I'd previously knitted it into a different cardigan but I wasn't really wearing it that much so I decided to frog it. I'm so glad I did, I love this one much more :)

Grace is a well written pattern and knits up quickly providing you don't stick your knitting in a bag and ignore it for weeks on end ;-) I wouldn't be at all surprised if I made myself another Grace in a different colour at some point in the future.

The buttons were from Berrynicecrafts on etsy. A dangerous shop to browse if you like pretty buttons!

    1. It definitely requires some concentration in the lace section doesn't it. Sometimes simple lace is harder than harder lace lol. Thank you :)
