H is the theme of my knitting right now – on my needles I have Andi Satterlunds gorgeous cardigan Hortencia. And I’m still working on my Hermione socks. A little every now and again… they’re almost done:)
But to be honest I’ve just been engrossed in my new cardi! I picked up the pattern when it was on sale on Valentines day. I have been looking for a quick and easy cardigan for a while, and this is perfect. It’s a very straightforward pattern to knit, but has a lovely collar in garter stitch to give it some texture and visual interest.
It’s a seamless, top down knit in stocking stitch. The collar is shaped with short rows in garter stitch. The sleeves are knit onto the armhole, with short rows used for the sleeve cap. I have one sleeve left to finish, but I’m quite proud of how neat the first one looks :
Yarn details are on my ravelry page The colour is difficult to photograph , it’s a green that slightly teal but with gorgeous flecks of colour throughout. I honestly can’t wait until it’s finished ( hopefully in time for Paddy’s Day! )
