FO - Annabel Cardigan

Hello everyone :) Today I'd like to share my latest FO with you which is the Annabel Cardigan by Georgie Hallam


I'd been eyeing up this pattern for a while and as my big girl had out grown all her other handknits I've been knitting a new selection for her. Like the Bulle sweater I made for her in January, this design also has some cosy pockets although they are constructed slightly differently



The buttons were from my stash, I think I possibly got them from John Lewis at some point. I thought the slightly floral design complimented the daisy stitch used in the details of this cardigan


The daisy stitch itself is fairly straight forward to knit with clear step by step photos in the instructions. The trickiest bit I found was wrapping the yarn in the middle of the stitches to make the centre of the flower. It involves maneuvering lots of loose stitches backwards and forwards between the needle with out dropping them!



I added a little extra length to the sleeves in the hope that she won't grow out of it too quickly. Plus it makes it nice and snuggly now :-)


The yarn I used was Cascade 220 Superwash in the Emerald City colourway which is such a gorgeous green. Really impressed with this yarn so providing it washes and wears well I'm sure I'll be using it again.

I'm going to go back to the cable rings on my Spun Sugar WIP now. I'm almost ready to close them up and then it's just the ribbing at the bottom and the sleeves. Hmm actually that sounds more than I was hoping, best get knitting lol.

  7. You should be proud of that sweater - it is gorgeous. The buttons work real well with it too. Good idea to make the sleeves a little longer so she can get more wear out of it. Cascade 220 has always been a good wearing yarn when I have used it.
