This post contains 2 cardigans for the price of one (It’s a Black Friday special!)
I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve finished making something and told myself that I need to make another version. It rarely happens though, instead I get distracted by the next new shiny pattern and forget all about it. Except this time…
The picture above is actually the second version I made of the Sunday Cardigan by PetiteKnit. I made my coral one below first, I used a bulky wool and made it close fitting rather than having any extra ease in it.
I love the shaping on the yoke and pictured a looser, snuggly version, in a longer length. I had a large ball of black acrylic in DK weight and mixed it with a light brown sock yarn to give it a marled effect. I went up a size from the 1st one (maybe 2 sizes actually – I can’t be certain now without counting the stitches!) .
Both cardigans needed a bit of added structure along the front bands. So on the coral one I added a strip of lace binding at the back:
And on the longer cardigan, I decided against any closures and handstitched black tape to stabilise the edges which were stretching out.
You can see the before and after below:
I have gotten so much wear out of these, that I might even make another one…… just as soon as the other 40 things on my knitting wish list are done 😉
